What type of switch do I need??
May 20, 2019 - 10:33pm

I have a Supermate DC6 LI-PO Battery charger and one of my buttons no longer is working. looks like corrosion took over. either way I am good at soldering to pcbs and can use a mlutimeter, but I am not an engeneer by any means. I just need to replace my non-working switch so I can have my button back. I am hoping a few people here might be able to point me in the right direction. here is a video of the charger sowing function of the other switches. I just need to know how to figure out what type of switch to replace it with.


Thanks in advance!

tactile button

The switch shown in the video is called tactile button. This particular one has longer lead to enclose it into a casing. But you can use any type of tactile button that is available in your local shop and it will work

Types of Cisco Switches
December 24, 2019 - 10:38am

Types of Cisco Switches :These types of switches are fixed in their configuration. What that means is that you cannot add features or options to the switch beyond those that originally came with the switch. The particular model you purchase determines the features and options available.There are typically different configuration choices that vary in how many and what types of ports are included.

Modular switches: – These types of switches offer more flexibility in their configuration. Modular switches typically come with different sized chassis that allow for the installation of different numbers of modular line cards the line cards actually contain the ports. The line card fits into the switch chassis like expansion cards fit into a PC. The larger the chassis, the more modules it can support.

Stackable Switches :- Stackable switches can be interconnected using a special back cable that provides high-bandwidth between the switches. Cisco introduced StackWise technology in one of its switch product lines. Stack Wise allows you to interconnect up to nine switches using fully redundant back plane connections.Switches are best stacked one atop of the other, and cables connect the switches in daisy chain fashion. The stacked switches effectively operate as a single larger switch. 

Stackable switches use a special port for interconnections and do not use line ports for inter-switch connections. The speeds are also typically faster than using line ports for connection switches.

You can use 4 pin micro push to ON tactile button in that place.
