Selecting a switch
While the electromechanical switch is one of the last components designed into a circuit, selecting the right switch is an essential part of designing anything that has to be powered on including control panels, industrial equipment, and electronic devices. It is imperative for designers to understand the options available in order to specify the most suitable switch for each application.



  Stop switches help in emergency situations
