An electrical switch in an electronic device used to interrupt the flow of electrons. Switches are the binary devices so they can be either completely off or completely on or in other words we can say that a switch is an electronic device which is used to break or make the electronic circuit automatically or manually. There are many types of electric switches available in the market. The working principle of the switch depends on the ON / OFF mechanism.

Switches are basically of 4 types. The styling of these four categories does not have a great difference but they differ in functionalities.

Categories of switches are as follows:

  • · Multi location switch
  • · Dimmer switch

Single Pole : Single pole electrical switches also known as toggle switches. It controls just one circuit. Such type of switches has single input and single output. A single-pole switch turns a light on and off from one location. These are most common switches found in the home. And these are easy to operate.

Double Pole : Double Pole electric switches control to separate circuits. A double pole switch is like separate single-pole switches that are mechanically operated by the same lever, knob, or button. These are also very easy to handle.

Three Way switches : A three-way switch consists two brass screws, a green screw and a darker colored screw. Using three-way switches, light can be control from two different locations. The three-way switch does not have the toggle handle switched. That is because one position does not mean that is necessarily on or off. It depends on the position of another switch.

Four-way switch : when you are using four way switch then it is recommended to hire a professional because its installation is not easy. A four way switch has four terminals each with two pairs of travelers.

Multi-location switch : Multi location switch is the interconnection of two or more electrical switches which are used to control an electrical load from multiple locations. For example, this allows lighting in a hallway, stairwell or large room to be controlled from multiple locations.

Dimmer switch : Dimmer switches allows you to turn the light in several subtle shades.

Importance of electric switches is as follows:

  • · Electric switches are very important because all the equipment we are using is useless without a switch.
  • · Electric switches use to connect and break the flow of connectivity.
  • · Electronic switches are used to perform all logical functions.
