Switch Education Anatomy of a Switch: Actuator: Toggle, Pushbutton, Rocker, Lever Moveable Contacts: Gold, Silver, Nickel Terminal Types: Metal portion of the switch exterior to body that is used to connect the switch to an electrical circuit Screw (standard or Clamp), Solder, Quick Connect, Wire leads, Plug In, Wire Wrap
Switch Education What is a Switch? A switch is a device that will either open or close a circuit. The switch will establish a connection between two or more circuits: Poles: Number of circuits a switch controls Throws: Number of conductors to which a switch can complete a circuit Positions: Number of stops the switch actuator makes Normally Open (NO)-circuit is open when actuator is in relaxed or normal position Normally Closed (NC)-circuit is closed when actuator is in relaxed or normal position
Switch Education Switch Rating: Maximum electrical load the switch is capable of handling Voltage: –AC Alternating current (minimum UL requirements) –Horsepower –DC –Direct Current (minimum UL requirements) –Horsepower (for switches designed to control small motor loads)
Switch Education Contacts: Gold Flash A plating of gold typically less than 10 millionths thick. Used only as a barrier to oxidation or corrosion of terminals to maintain solderability Gold plating should be used when the switch’s voltage and current multiple is no greater than 0.4 VA and the voltage is not greater than 20 VDC or peak AC.
Switch Education Momentary Vs. Maintained Single Pole Single Throw SPST (two position)/On-Off: The is the simplest and most basic circuit. Only one circuit is closed by the switches single pole. Double-Throw Without Center Off (two position)/On-ON: SPDT It is seen electrically On-On. The switch has two manual positions and reflects two independent electrically ON positions. Two circuits can be closed by the switches single pole. Examples of applications include a selector function, such as 6 or 12V on a battery charger or Hi- Low on a automobile headlight switch.
Switch Education Double-Throw with Center Off (three position): Hi-Off-Low: It has two independent ON switches, it can be considered On-Off or Hi-Off-Lo Circuit for the exhaust fan in a kitchen range hood. Double-Throw Momentary Action with Center Off (three position): Momentary or non maintained. Momentary is electrically On or Off, generally has spring loading. Examples are UP-Down for projector screens, tailgate windows, and forward/reverse for electric drills and screw drivers Important to Know: We can modify…..
