Rotary switches are a type of switch having an actuating member that when turned in a given direction completes a circuit in which the rotary switch is connected and when turned in an opposite directions or further in the same direction interrupts the same circuit. Rotary switches are switched on and off by the rotational movement of a rotary handle. Rotary switches are generally comprised of a cylindrical body housing metal contact segments which can be manipulated to open and close circuits connected to the rotary switch. Rotary switches are in the form of at least two parts and have a rotatable switching means arranged in a housing and a rotary knob having a coupling element which can be pushed into or onto the switching means. Rotary switches are used in various fields to provide multi-circuit control capability, and are commonly found in such applications as aircraft, medical equipment, computers, industrial controls, communication, ordnance, and ground support equipment. Rotary switches are primarily utilized in small appliances to regulate the application of power to the appliance through the rotation of an actuation shaft.
