Electrical Switches Application

Electrical switches are used to control the flow of electricity between two or more circuits. They can be used for single-circuit isolation, multiple-circuit isolation and switching.

Electrical switches are generally classified by their physical design and functionality. A circuit breaker is designed to protect against electrical overloads by closing a circuit breaker. A relay is designed to isolate one circuit from another without interrupting power flow. An electrical switch is designed to isolate one circuit from another without interrupting power flow.

A switch is a device that interrupts the flow of electric current in a circuit. The flow is usually restored by a mechanical action that reconnects the circuit again.

A switch can be mechanically, tactilely or remotely operated.

Switches provide a means to control electrical current supply to electric loads. One crucial aspect is to conduct electric current. The other aspect is the ability to break the current. This should happen as desired. For many electric switches, breaking the circuit involves putting an air gap between two contacts. The contacts must be opened fast enough to ensure the desired operation.

For most electronic switches, the state of the connection is changed by changing the effective resistance of that connection. The resistance can be made very high to effectively make it an open circuit or made low enough to close the circuit. It is common to have no physically moving components on the switch itself.

Waterproof electrical switches are used in various industries, such as submarines, engine rooms, control panels, ship electrical equipment, etc.

They are mainly used in water and wet places. This series of waterproof electrical switches can be used for common lighting or emergency lighting circuit or other special applications.

With special features such as small size, light weight, low power consumption and high switching rate etc., it has the invaluable features of small volume, light weight and high reliability.
