What function does the switch serve?
- Indicator (Used only to provide feedback to the operator) One application we have seen for this is indicating if a valve is open, closed, or unresponsive.
- Pushbutton (Control up to 32 independent circuits simply by pressing a button) One application we have seen for this is resetting an HVAC smoke alarm. When the smoke alarm needed to be reset, a single push of the button would do so.
- Selector (Can be 2, 3, or 4 position. Allows the operator to select between different circuits) One application we have seen for this type of switch is to control a fog horn. When the selector is in the first position the fog horn is off, and when the fog horn is in the second position, the fog horn gets turned on.
- Selector-Push (Can be 2, 3, or 4 position. Gives the greatest degree of control to the operator) One application we have seen for this type of switch is to turn an engine on and off. A spring returned operator is used, so switch just has to be turned to turn on the engine, and then pushed down to turn the engine off.
