A dual in-line package (DIP) switch is a manual electronic package that is composed of a series of tiny switches. It has a rectangular casing and two parallel rows of connecting terminals. Common DIP switch features include tape and reel packaging, imprinted markings, CE and CSA certifications, UL listed, dustproof, and waterproof or weather resistant. A DIP switch can be normally open (NO), normally closed (NC), or three stages. Types of DIP switches include a slide actuator, which can be configured to have raised or recessed slides; a rocker switch, which can be configured to have raised or recessed rockers; and a piano switch, which is a side-actuated lever that has “keys” to push down to actuate. We offer a wide variety of surface mount and through hole DIP switches. With a variety of actuator styles and sizes, these switches can be used in a range of applications. Our DIP switches range in position sizes from 1 to 12, with the capability of adding our end stackable switches to address customer needs. DIP switches are normally found on motherboards, expansion cards, and auxiliary cards, and are often used to hold configuration settings on computers and peripherals like circuit boards and modems.
