What is the difference between momentary, latched and timer switches?
When you press a momentary switch, the device stays on as long as you maintain pressure on the switch.
A latch switch turns on the device when the switch is pressed once and turns off the device when the switch is pressed again.
Our Two Function Jumbo Switch #7910 allows you to choose between momentary and latch operation.
Pressing a timer switch turns on a device for a preset amount of time (0 to 120 seconds). Enabling Devices has a Switch Modifier (#605) that will change any momentary switch into a latch or timer switch.
