Question about American Fluorescent AF-TSLP-SRS In-Line Switch for TSLP Series by
There are three basic types of wall switches. # Toggle Switch - The popular toggle switch has an arrow-shaped armature that floats between the contact points when the switch is in the off position. This armature comes in contact with both terminals when the switch is flipped to the on position (B), thus providing a continuous flow of electrical current to the light or appliance. # Mercury Switch - The mercury switch has a small hollow cylinder, partially filled with mercury. In the off position, the small contact point is above the mercury level (A). When flipped to the on position, the contact point is immersed in mercury (B). This establishes contact between the two terminals and provides power to the light or appliance. # Silent Switch - The silent switch has a steel spring armature that is pressed away from the bottom terminal when the switch is turned off. Flipping the switch lever to the on position moves the steel spring back against the contact point (B), thus establishing contact in the circuit.
