Switches

An electrical switch is any device that is used to interrupt the flow of electrons in a circuit. Switches are essentially binary devices: they are either completely on (“closed”) or completely off (“open”). There are many different types of switches.

Combination
Combination switches offer pleasing, practical designs that fit standard wallboxes. Switch/switch, switch/receptacle and switch/pilot light combinations are available. These devices come in a range of colors and they are backed by a two-year warranty usually.

Dimming
There is a wide array of styles, colors and control options when it comes to dimming switches. There are hundreds of choices when it comes to stand-alone dimmers and switches. There are multiple designs and control openings that compliment any décor and provide functionality for ambiance, convenience and security, which meets all of your lighting control needs.

Fan / Speed
Fan/Speed switches offer a variety of fan speed controls that combine sophisticated design with state-of-the-art technology. The comprehensive line comes in a vast array of styles and lighting loads. They have a contemporary styling that provides precise, dependable, quiet control. These Fan/Speed switches coordinate with other dimmers and switches that will help to potentially save energy.

Occupancy/Vacancy
Occupancy/Vacancy sensors can automatically turn lights on when you enter a room and off when you leave. They are a smart and easy way to save energy in commercial applications. Occupancy/Vacancy sensors can typically save 30 percent and up to 60 percent of lighting energy in a building.

RF
An RF (Radio Frequency) and microwave switch is a device that is used to route high frequency signal through transmission paths. RF and microwave switches are used extensively in microwave test systems for signal routing between instruments and devices under test (DUT).

Rocker
Rocker switches are panel-mounted for use with appliances, light control, power tools, industrial machines, motor, and surge protection. There is a diverse selection of rocker switches that include lighted and momentary on/off.

Toggle
A toggle switch utilizes a sturdy mechanical lever handle or a rocking mechanism to either provide simultaneous actuation of multiple electrical contacts or to control large amounts of electric current. They are available with one to four poles and typically feature an AMP rating ranging from 2 amps to 10 amps.
