Pololu Pushbutton Power Switch SV (old version)
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.
