Types of Switches in Electronics

Switches are electromechanical devices. The are used to control the  path of current or energy flow. Power switches are used to turn on and off loads. The contacts should be robust and have immunity to  sparking and corrosion. Switches for signals need to be gold plated for low contact resistance and within a sealed enclosure.

Illuminated Rocker and Plain Rocker DPDT switches are popular in Power Boards and Extension Boxes for Mains power switching. Both Phase and Neutral lines are switched ON or OFF. This is not only safe but also reduces sparking.
