Electrical Switches

Electrical switches are devices used for interrupting the flow of electrical power in a circuit. Different types of electrical switches are available, but they are all binary in nature, meaning they are either on or off.

Since electrical switches came into use, different models have come into play and several variants have emerged, but the simplest is the one where a couple of electrical conductors make contact by way of an actuating system. The more complex ones however, use more electrical circuits that go off and on using other mechanisms.

Sockets

Electrical sockets don’t come with any moving parts. What they do have are strips of metal that generate electricity when it makes contact with electric plug prongs. Just like switches, different types of sockets have been developed, with the newer ones lighter and more convenient to use.

Modern sockets make it easier and safer than ever to use, with the newer ones designed to work only if the electric plug is inserted properly. The number of slots in these sockets can vary, though the most popular ones have two or three. However the number of slots does not serve as indication of how well designed it is.

Ground Fault Interruptors (GFIs) are electrical sockets that were developed for detecting electrical current leaks, an important feature for preventing accidents. For this reason, the use of GFIs have been increasing, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens were electrical leaks are most likely to occur.
