The switch is one of the most powerful components in electronic products. The function of the switch is different from other components, and it is an important interface between the operator and the machine. Among all types of switches, there is a switch whose working strength must be higher than most switches, that is, anti-vandal switches. Regardless of the application, this type of switch must provide powerful functions, reliable performance and robust protection, while also being easy to install and use. Most importantly, these switches must provide reliable protection against malicious tampering and damage to the equipment.
Most anti-vandal switches are designed with round buttons. The frame and actuator of the switch are made of stainless steel, which has high mechanical strength and strong chemical resistance. The actuator is the most frequently used part of the switch, and its shape design usually reduces the risk of misoperation and damage by potential saboteurs.
When using a small size design, the actuator helps to limit the distance between the switch and the panel, thereby minimizing damage caused by a screwdriver or other slim tools while simplifying operation. These switches, also known as vandal-proof switches, are connected to the panel using pre-installation technology, and the fixed nut (called a locknut) is safely hidden behind the panel to further ensure that the switch has a smooth outer contour.
In most cases, vandal-proof switches are installed in areas exposed to wind and rain for applications such as external security systems. This means that the material of the switch must not only withstand frequent use, but also withstand harsh environments. The use of appropriate materials is essential for long-term and reliable protection of the precision electronic components in the equipment.
