Difference between Lock and Momentary switches? Push Button Switch, Slide Switch


Lock switches and momentary switches operate in different ways and therefore suit different applications. What is the difference between Lock and Waterproof Push Button Momentary Switch? Lock Switches Latching switches are switched on by the user and then remain on until switched off again. They do not require continuous compression from the user. Latching switches can be found in the home and are used for things like light switches, central heating switches or on stereos. Momentary switches Momentary switches require continuous compression. They will switch on when the user compresses the switch and will remain on only for as long as there is pressure on the switch. Once the pressure is removed they will switch off. For example; a door buzzer or an electric drill. The momentary switches are used within the medical industry on the hand or foot control for hospital beds. The patient can move the bed to the desired position but they must keep their finger on the button for the bed to move. We also provide momentary switches for [press to talk" applications. Operators of telephones use the switch to answer the phone and the line will remain open as long as the switch is pressed down.
