Description: DIP switch with 8 individual switch positions. The pins have .1" spacing - fits great into a breadboard! Works great as general control switches.

Many products manufactured have these on them, and for good reason. changing parameters is one great usage I have, such as Daylight Savings time, unit conversion selector. Or changing bits in a byte to select one of 32 options.
This is a really neat switch to have and its useful for settings that don’t need to be changed too often but it has a hard time staying securely on a breadboard due to the short leads.
