Difference between Modular Switch and Normal switch | Modular Switch vs Non-modular switch
This page compares Modular Switch vs Normal switch (i.e. Non-modular switch) and describes difference between Modular Switch and Normal switch.
As we know electrical switches are devices which are used to interrupt flow of electric current. They are binary devices which can be in one of the two states either ON or OFF. Switch can be used to make or break the electric circuit.
Based on specifications electric switches are categorized into SPST (single pole single throw), SPDT (single pole double throw), DPST (double pole single throw) and DPDT (double pole double throw). Moreover based on usage switches are categorized into "Do not disturb switch", "Light Dimmer" and "Bell Push Switch".
Based on Interior decor requirement and customized user requirements, switches are categorized into modular and normal switch. The figure depicts both modular vs normal switch. Modular switches are preferred for safety concerns and luxury requirements over conventional non modular switches.
