Have you ever wanted to start your widget the same way you start your car? These small switches are the key to making that happen. This simple ON-OFF switch can be used to power up your project with the turn of a key. At only 14.6mm across the top and 23mm long, it won't take up much space in your project enclosure.
While the datasheet does rate these switches for 1A at 125VAC, we recommend using them as input switches or to switch small voltages, such as power to your Arduino. However they can be used to switch small amounts of power.
