   Momentary Switch Function:       
   Your choices are...         
   Momentary ON (NO)       Momentary ON describes contacts which interrupt the circuit when the switch is in the normal, open (NO) position. 
   Momentary OFF (NC)       Momentary OFF describes contacts which establish a circuit when the switch is in the normal, closed (NC) position. 
   Alternate ON/OFF       Alternate ON/OFF describes a switch where the first actuation turns the device ON and the second actuation turns the switch OFF. 
   Three-Position Momentary Center-OFF       The device is a three-position switch where the center position performs an OFF function. For example, top is Momentary-ON, center is OFF, and bottom is Momentary-ON. 
   Three-Position Momentary Center-NEUTRAL       The device is a three-position switch where the center position performs a NEUTRAL function. For example, top is Momentary-ON, center is OFF, and bottom is Momentary-OFF. 
   Other       Other unlisted momentary switch functions.

Electrical Specifications
   Pole and Throw Specifications       
   Your choices are...         
   Single Pole, Single Throw (SPST)       Single pole, single throw (SPST) switches make or break the connection of a single conductor in a single branch circuit. They usually have two terminals and are referred to as single-pole switches. 
   Single Pole, Double Throw (SPDT)       Single pole, double throw (SPDT) switches make or break the connection of a single conductor with either of two other single conductors. They usually have three terminals and are commonly used in pairs. SPDT switches are sometimes called three-way switches. 
   Double Pole, Single Throw (DPST)       Double pole, single throw (DPST) switches make or break the connection of two circuit conductors in a single branch circuit. They typically have four terminals. 
   Double Pole, Double Throw (DPDT)       Double pole, double throw (DPDT) switches make or break the connection of two conductors to two separate circuits. They typically have six terminals and are available in both momentary and maintained contact versions. 
   Other       Other, special throw types with more than two poles. Examples include switches that are designed to split loads into separate circuits (e.g., headlamp switch).

Terminal Type
   Terminal Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Feed-Through Style       Feed-through style switches are in-line devices that can be attached to any point on a length of flexible cord in order to provide switching control for attached equipment. 
   Wire Leads       The switch has integral wire leads for an electrical connection. 
   Solder Terminals       Terminals require soldering for a positive electrical connection. 
   Screw Terminals       Terminals require the use of a screw or clamp for a positive electrical connection. 
   Quick Connect/Blade       Blade terminals or spade terminals are designed to be inserted and/or removed rapidly, without soldering. 
   Surface Mount Technology       Surface mount technology (SMT) adds components to a printed circuit board (PCB) by soldering component leads or terminals to the top surface of the board. With careful placement, SMT components on solder paste remain in position until elevated temperatures, usually from an infrared oven, melt the paste and solder the component leads to the PCB pads. 
   Straight PC Pins       Devices use straight printed circuit (PC) pins. 
   Right Angle PC Pins       Devices use right-angle PC pins.

Features
           
   Your choices are...         
   Pilot Light?       Switches use a pilot light to indicate whether the circuit is active. This allows operators to tell at a glance if a switch is ON. 
   Illuminated Switch?       Switches illuminate an integral lamp to indicate a connection to an energized circuit. 
   Imprinted Markings (e.g., ON/OFF, I/O)?       Switches have markings such as ON/OFF, HI/LOW, I/O, etc. 
   Wiping Contacts?       Switches are self-cleaning and usually low-resistance. Wiping creates mechanical wear. 
   High Inrush Current Compatible (>100A)?       Switches can handle a high inrush current. 
   Locking Switch?       Devices are equipped with a locking mechanism that requires the use of a key to operate the switching functions. 
   Time Delay?       Switches are equipped with an integral mechanism or electronic circuit that will automatically turn a load OFF at a predetermined time interval. 
   Has CE Certification?       Switches are CE-certified. 
   Has CSA Certification?       Switches are certified by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). 
   Is UL listed?       Switches are listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). 
   Dustproof?       Switches are sealed against dust. 
   Weather-Resistant or Waterproof?       Switches are weather-resistant or waterproof.
