A DIP switch is a manual electric switch that is packaged with others in a group in a standard dual in-line package (DIP). This type of switch is designed to be used on a printed circuit board along with other electronic components and is commonly used to customize the behaviour of an electronic device for specific situations. DIP-switches are an alternative to jumper blocks. Their main advantages are that they are quicker to change and there are no parts to lose. Are usually used in digital electronics, robotics, flashing and programming, remote controls for gates and general electronic devices.
This model of DIP Switch is formed by 3 independent switches in a standard dual in-line packages (DIP6).
