Switches and Sockets in Electrical Systems

Switches and sockets are essential components of electrical systems found in homes, offices, and various other settings.

Switches are devices used to control the flow of electricity in a circuit. They typically come in the form of a lever, button, or toggle that can be flipped or pressed to either complete or break the circuit, thereby turning electrical devices or lights on or off. Switches are commonly installed on walls, usually near doors or entrances for convenient access.

Sockets, on the other hand, are receptacles designed to provide electrical connections for plugs from appliances, devices, or lamps. They consist of a set of metal contacts within an insulated housing, allowing for the safe insertion and removal of plugs. Sockets are installed into walls or fixtures and are typically positioned at convenient locations for powering various electrical devices.

Both switches and sockets come in a variety of designs, sizes, and functionalities to suit different applications and aesthetic preferences. They play a crucial role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of electrical systems by enabling users to control the distribution of power to different devices and appliances.
