What is a single pole double throw (SPDT) switch?
- Single pole double throw switches feed power from a single source into two separate circuits. The break-before-make action can be actuated using a toggle, button, or in the case of the products above, a pressure sensor; triggering a change in circuit one a pre-set pressure is detected.
Where is a SPDT switch used?
- SPDT switches are used in any circuit (or circuits) where one switch is required to power conflicting actions. In some cases, it may be used as an on/off switch, but they are more suited to switching between circuits that do not need to run at the same time. For example, to switch between power sources (with a momentary lapse in power as the circuit breaks), or to switch equipment between “standby” mode and “active” mode.
- The precise implications of this vary according to the circuit composition, but SPDT switches are commonly found in domestic appliances, the automotive industry and heavy equipment, as a safety feature.
How does a single pole double throw switch work?
- A single pole double throw switch is a break-before-make changeover switch; connecting a common source to a normally closed (NC) port, or a normally open (NO) port. Whether using a toggle, a timer, a button or a pressure sensor, the two circuits are isolated from each other until the switch is actuated.
