3 function switch

ok so i have my bathroom all wired up with my 20 amp dedicated branch. I have 3 functions that i want to be able to control so i got a 3 function switch. No on a piece of paper that came with it there are 4 columns. Model, Amps, Volts, and HZ. Under the columns it says P66W, 15/Rocker 20 total, 120, 60, respectively. NOW, is this 3 function switch gauged for 15 amps or for 20 amps?

3 function switch

Ok let get this covered now.,,

Model number is P66W
Volts that usally max safe rated voltage it can be used in your case 120 volts
HZ mean Hertz or cycle per second and in North America it is 60 HZ so not worry about that one.

Now this get instering twist here
the amp rating you have two rating each switch are rated at 15 amp but you have second number is 20 amp so that mean you can use any three or all three switches on but the total load can NOT be over 20 amp

That how they rated this switch.
