Pole and Throw Specifications
   Pole and Throw Specifications       
   Your choices are...         
   Single Pole, Single Throw (SPST)       A switch that makes or breaks the connection of a single conductor in a single branch circuit. This switch typically has two terminals. It is commonly referred to as a "Single-Pole" Switch. 
   Single Pole, Double Throw (SPDT)       A switch that makes or breaks the connection of a single conductor with either of two other single conductors. This switch typically has 3 terminals, and is commonly used in pairs and called a "Three-Way" switch. 
   Double Pole, Single Throw (DPST)       A switch that makes or breaks the connection of two circuit conductors in a single branch circuit. This switch typically has four terminals. 
   Double Pole, Double Throw (DPDT)       A switch that makes or breaks the connection of two conductors to two separate circuits. This switch typically has six terminals and is available in both momentary and maintained contact versions. 
   Other Type (Special Application)       Special throw types with more than 2 poles, such as switches designed to split loads into separate circuits (e.g. headlamp switch) 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
