Momentary On-Off Momentary On, Without Lamp
A start/stop switch is a type of switch that is used to turn an electrical device on and off. It is typically a push button switch with two positions: start and stop. When the start button is pressed, the switch closes and allows current to flow to the device. When the stop button is pressed, the switch opens and current flow stops.
Start/stop switches are commonly used in industrial and commercial applications, such as for controlling motors, pumps, and other equipment. They are also used in some consumer products, such as lawnmowers, chainsaws, and power tools.
Start/stop switches can be either momentary or latching. Momentary start/stop switches turn the device on and off as long as the button is pressed. Latching start/stop switches turn the device on when the button is pressed and keep it on even after the button is released.
Start/stop switches can also be either manual or automatic. Manual start/stop switches are operated by the user. Automatic start/stop switches turn the device on and off automatically based on certain conditions, such as the temperature or the position of a sensor.
Start/stop switches are an important part of many electrical circuits. They allow users to easily and safely control the operation of their devices.
Vehicle start/stop systems
Start/stop switches are also used in vehicle start/stop systems. These systems automatically shut down the engine when the vehicle is stationary and restart it when the driver is ready to go. Start/stop systems can help to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions.
Vehicle start/stop systems typically use a combination of sensors and a control module to determine when to start and stop the engine. The sensors monitor factors such as the vehicle speed, the engine temperature, and the battery voltage. The control module uses this information to decide whether or not to start or stop the engine.
When the vehicle is stationary, the control module may start the engine if the battery voltage is low or if the engine temperature is too high. The control module may also start the engine if the driver releases the brake pedal or presses the accelerator pedal.
Vehicle start/stop systems can be either manual or automatic. Manual start/stop systems allow the driver to disable the system at any time. Automatic start/stop systems cannot be disabled by the driver.
