Bench Testing

To assess the performance of the rocker switch, side view videos were recorded to capture the on and off transition points of the LEDs designated for the corresponding default or active states. From these videos, the z and x coordinates of the hinge origin and triangle reference lines were recorded to derive the transition angle with a tangent function. Figure 2-19 shows one example. All of the bench tests were conducted at room temperature.
