I first read Switch Basics from Spark-Fun tutorial to help me better understand how to find what I am looking for using DigiKey/Mouser Advanced search terminology.
I know I am looking for a maintained latching switch where I push once to turn on, push again to turn off.
When I look at the DigiKey/Mouser advanced search under the "Switch Function" section I find:
- Off-On: Does this mean that the switch is initially off? Then it is on when pushed?
- On-Off: Does this mean initially On?
- On-Off, Off-On: Is this a toggle type?
- (ON) - (OFF)
- OFF - (ON)
- ON - (OFF)
- ON - OFF
What is the difference between each function?
