45. Can a 3-way switch be used as a single-pole 25mm push button switch?
Yes, you can use a 3-way switch as a single-pole 25mm push button switch.
You can just convert your 3-way switch into the single-pole 25mm push button switch.
First of all, you have to connect the wires to the one traveler terminal.
Just disconnect the wire from another traveler terminal and leave it blank.
After removing the traveler wire, just install the wire connecter on it and the other side of that wire will be on the load side.
Then, to the other traveler wire, connect the 3-way switch common wire, to supply switched line voltage to the light and install a blank cover. See the below diagram:
Then remove the 3-way switch from the line side box. Connect the line wire to one of the traveler wires using a wire connector, to supply line voltage to the 3-way switch in the load side box. To make the other traveler free, install a wire connector on it. And then install a blank cover on the box.
Remove the traveler spare wire from the switch in the load side box, and then attach a wire connector to it. See the below diagram:

46. How to test the 25mm push button switch before installing it?
You can test the 25mm push button switch in four steps.
Turn on the multimeter and select the ohmmeter function.
The resistance range should be ‘x1’.
If the ohmmeter has auto range capability then you can skip this step.
Test switch ohm meter
Insert the leads into the meter and touch the probe tips with each other to check whether the meter is working or not.
If the meter shows 1 or less in the display, it means the meter is working fine.
If it shows some other figures, just change the ohmmeter.
Testing the ohmmeter
Connect the red lead to one terminal and the black lead to another terminal of your push button switch and turn ON the push button switch.
If the ohmmeter displays 1 or less, it means the push button switch is perfectly ON.
Testing the push button switch at ON position
Put your push button switch at the OFF position.
If the display shows ‘OL’ or high frequency, it means the push button switch is perfectly OFF.
You can test your 25mm push button switch several times in the same way.
If it gives the same results, you can install it with confidence.

47. What kind of wires are normally used in the circuit of a 25mm push button switch?
25mm push button switch is used in heavy-duty. So, it requires connecting with high voltage wires.
Its wire capacity still varies according to the type of 25mm push button switch.
But normally AGW22 to AGW26 wire are selected to connect with the 25mm push button switch.
Some 25mm push buttons come up including wire in the market.
48. What is the estimated useful life of a 25mm push button switch?
The estimated useful life of a 25mm push button switch varies according to its type.
The anti-vandal 25mm push button switch has an estimated mechanical life of 1,000,000 cycles and electrical life of more than 50,000 cycles.
The 25mm piezo push button switch has estimated useful life of 50 million cycles.
And the 25mm capacitive push button switch also has expected useful life of around 50 million cycles.
49. How much temperature resistance are different 25mm push button switches?
25mm push button switches are used for heavy-duty, that is why they have strong resistance against heat.
The 25mm anti-vandal push button switch has heat resistance power up to 55°C.
The 25mm piezo push button switch has the strongest heat resistance up to 75°C.
The 25mm capacitive pus-button switch can resist temperature up to 65°C.
50. Is the 25mm push button switch vibration resistant?
Yes, but not all the types of 25mm push button switch has vibration resistance.
Only the 25mm piezo push button switches are vibration resistant.
The 25mm piezo push button switch has vibration resistance up to 10-500 Hz / 10 g per IEC 60068-2-6.
