Pushbutton Switch (N.O) Normally open contacts pushbutton switch – push to close, release to open

What does SPST NO MEAN?

This switch is a SPST-NO, or single pole single throw normally open circuit. This means that current cannot flow through this switch until the actuator has been pressed.

Where are SPST switches used?

SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) The SPST is a basic ON/OFF switch, that is used to connect or break the connection between two terminals. The power supply for the owl circuit is given by this switch.

What is SPST relay?

The SPST Relay block models a single-pole single-throw relay. The block has three potential states: De-energized — The common contact, C, changes from being connected to disconnected from the normally open contact, S.

What is the symbol for a toggle switch?

Electronic Switch Symbols

Name Description
