Pololu Pushbutton Power Switch SV (old version)

Pololu item #: 750

This product has been discontinued.

We have released improved versions of these switches in several different power levels and with substantially expanded operating voltage ranges. These older switches are now only available by large-volume special order. Please contact us for more information.

The Pololu Pushbutton Power Switch is a patented design initially created for our Orangutan Robot Controllers as an alternative to bulky mechanical switches. The switch is intended to be the main power switch for a DC device requiring up to several amps of current. Please see the detailed description for product details and limitations. This item is the 4.5-20 V standard-voltage version.
