    Toggle Switch Amps

    Hi guys,

    I am converting over from mini toggle switches in my B-17 cockpit to standard size toggle switches. I was wondering if 3A @ 125V is sufficient for the SPST switches.

    They are connected to a BU0836X.

    I have been searching everywhere, but can't find anything that explains how amps fit in to the equation with switches connected to game controllers.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    I think almost everything works fine with the BU0836x - maybe if you just buy one and then test it ...

    Re: Toggle Switch Amps

    If connected to a BU0836X, the current flowing through the switch is so small as to be considered negligable. The switch is not switching an electrical load, rather a signal that the Bodnar card reads and passes on to the software.
