Difference between 'NONE' and 'OFF' of NKK Switches B13AP

Hi all,

I was wondering what’s the difference between ‘NONE’ and ‘OFF’ for the toggle switch series which contains ‘360-1013-ND’

The datasheet does not clarify the difference between them.

I’d appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!

It’s a question of whether or not there is a mechanically stable actuator state available in the indicated position,and corresponding switching function. A switch with “none” listed for the middle position would behave very similar to a typical residential light switch, in the mechanical sense.

Hi Felix,

Thank you for your inquiry. NONE specifies there is no center actuation (only 2 actuator toggle positions), where OFF specifies there is a center toggle actuation but no electrical switching (3 actuator toggle positions).

Thanks for your explanation!

Thanks for your help!
