2 lamps, independent
Genuine Carling Rocker Switch
DPDT Rocker Switch w/ (2) IND Lamps
The VJD2-U66B is a very robust and flexible rocker switch. It is Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT) and it’s function is ON-OFF-ON. It has two independent lamps, one at the top and one at the bottom (What’s this?). This switch would be used when you want to feed (2) loads from 1 or 2 sources (like a boat’s navigation and anchor, or a car’s turn signal). Having two independent lamps allows each to be used as a backlight, or jumpered to outputs to create any combination of dependencies.
This switch may also be used as a SPDT switch by simply not using 3 of the terminals.
We say it’s flexible for a reason: Notice in the wiring schematic, that the two halfs of the switch are isolated from each other… and both lamps are totally independent and isolated as well which allows flexibility to use the right side (pins 4-5-6) for one thing and the left side (1-2-3) for another… There are actually (6) separate and isolated circuit paths within this one switch (4 load, 2 illumination)! With pins 1-2-3 and 4-5-6 isolated, you can provide two different inputs… for instance, you could put 12V+ into pin 2, and 12V- into pin 5, and with a few jumpers can reverse polarity on an electric motor!
This is a rocker switch body only. This V-series switch is meant to be paired with our custom etched rocker actuators (covers) or other actuators for a complete switch unit. All actuators sold on this site will fit this switch. When using our custom etched actuators you probably would want to add a “Bottom Lens” for this switch (What’s this?).
Like all our rocker switches this is a genuine Carling Technologies product. It is IP68 sealed dustproof and waterproof.
