2 Position 22mm Selector Switch Contact Actuation

Issue:
What is the actuation of contacts on a two-position 22mm switch?

Product Line:
22mm Push Buttons - GIC Product

Environment:
US Product

Cause:
Different switches actuate contacts in different ways

Resolution:
The actuation of contacts depends on three things; wiring, mounting position, type of contact.  For a 22mm switch, the actuation is relatively simple.  when any of the two-position switches are turned to the right, the switch actuates all of the contacts which are mounted to it.  The attached chart shows this actuation graphically.
