Toggle switches are activated by a handle angled in one of two or more positions and forth to open or close an electrical circuit. The usual light button used in household wiring is an example of a toggle switch. Toggle switches can be found in different dimensions or sizes, from miniature PCB mount up to… Continue reading Types of Toggle Switches and how to install Toggle Switches
A potentiometer (simply “pot” or “knob”) is a variable resistor, having a three-terminal mechanically operated rotary analog device. The potentiometers are the most elementary component in electronics and also electric circuits. This simple component can be located nearly almost everywhere from a simple LED circuit to a critical SMPS circuit. A potentiometer has three (3)… Continue reading Overview of the Potentiometers & Choosing Right Potentiometers
