Hello. I’ve seen rocket switches that switches to different poles, is there any similar pushbutton switches that operates in the same manner? I need a pushbutton switch that switches from different poles for each push.

I mean like a normally open switch, first push turns on pole 1, release switch turns it off, second push turns pole 2 on, release switch turns it off etc. Like a normally open center off rocket switch or joystick but one push button mechanism to control everything in succession.

I assume you are meaning a "rocker" switch? Never heard of a rocket switch. Getting the terminology correct helps when searching for things. Pretty sure I have seen what you seem to be describing. Like a rotary switch but a push button advances the poles. I just can't recall who made them.

Rocker switch yes, that’s what I mean, my fault. A rotary switch or a slide switch but with a pushbutton mechanism advancing the poles yes, I think that’s the best description of what I’m looking for.

9 Volts is apparently the voltage you are switching, Max is asking the current? When choosing a switch for any application things like how much current and voltage we plan to switch. Those being just a few basic characteristics but likely the most important. Switches get into a world unto themselves between things like contact materials and coating (plating), action types, make before break or make after break and the list goes on. This is why you get a few questions.

I have seen what you are asking for but can't recall who made it or the application I saw it used in. Had to have been 15 ~ 20 years ago. Then you could look at what the major switch manufacturer's have, names like CK Switch, Cherry, Carling and others come to mind.
