Carlingswitch ON/OFF double pole V series Contura rocker switch body.
  • ON/OFF configuration
  • Double Pole*, the two sides of the switch are independent of each other. This is a very odd configuration and not a typical double pole switch - read the full description carefully. Though this is a double pole switch, it is typically used to power only one accessory.
  • 12V Red independent LED lamp in the #1 (top) position is wired to terminals (#7 -) and (#8 +) and illuminates independently of actuator position.
  • 12V Green dependent LED lamp in #2 (bottom) position is wired to terminals (#3+)(internally) and (#6-). This lamp illuminates when the switch is actuated to the ON position.
  • An independent lamp has both a positive and negative terminal as opposed to a dependent lamp that just has a negative terminal. Independent lamps can be lit independently of the actuator position as opposed to "dependent" lamps that get their power internally when the actuator moves to the "on" position
  • 6 terminal; Top right terminal (#7) is the ground for the red lamp in position #1 (top). Top left terminal (#8) is the power feed for the red independent lamp in position #1(top). The middle left terminal (#2) is power in. The bottom left terminal (#3) is power out (and also the positive feed for the green lamp). The middle right terminal (#5) is not used, The lower right terminal (#6) is the ground for the Green lamp in position #2 (bottom)
  • Carling VAD1-3
  • Common for Marine, RV, automotive, and other 12V DC applications.
  • Choose from a variety of actuators with different lenses. Actuator part numbers begin with VV
