9007MS/ML switches. How do I read the bar graph?<br />

The bar graph lists terminal identification numbers on the left. A solid bar indicates a closed contact, transitions to white when contacts open. A triangle pointing to the right indicates that the actuating mechanism is moving away from its ``At rest`` position. When the mechanism is moving back toward its ``At Rest`` position, the triangle points to the left. The amount of movement required to change contact state is shown as a linear measure for plunger applications, and degrees of movement for lever arm rotation. The opening and closing points of each contact are separated by a distance known as the dead band, used to prevent contact chatter. There will be one pair of graph lines (1 for actuation, 1 for return) for each set of contacts in the switch.
