Terms used to describe switch contacts:
- Pole – number of switch contact sets.
- Throw – number of conducting positions (only used for single and double)
Switch Contact Ratings
Switch contacts are rated with a maximum voltage and current, and there may be different ratings for AC and DC. The AC values are higher because the current falls to zero many times each second and an arc is less likely to form across the switch contacts.
For low voltage electronics projects the voltage rating will not matter, but you may need to check the current rating. The maximum current is less for inductive loads (coils and motors) because they cause more sparking at the contacts when switched off.
Dual ON-OFF, DPST
DPST = Double Pole, Single Throw
A pair of on-off switches which operate together (shown by the dotted line in the circuit symbol).
A DPST switch is often used for mains electricity because it switches both the live and neutral connections.
