working of momentary switch/Tactile momentary switch/contact switch and toggle switch

Here we are going to see two different switch working.

1.momentary switch/Tactile momentary switch/contact switch all are same

2. Toggle switch

1.Momentary switch/Tactile momentary switch/contact switch

A momentary switch has a spring, such that if no force is applied the contact will be open. Applying force continuously will close the contact on the momentary switch.

2. Toggle switch

A toggle switch can be placed in either the open or closed state, and force is required to change from open to closed or from closed to open.

How to connect the momentary switch/Tactile momentary switch/contact switch in a solderless breadboard

momentary switch/Tactile momentary switch/contact switch all are same. Now got an knowledge about the three technical names of single switch my friend.

Push-button with annotation

All of the ones I’ve used have been SPST switches with the 2 legs that point toward each other connected together in electrically identical pairs; the switching is done from pair to pair.

Note: see closely the above pic info –  pin shape and its leg facing direction, you can easily discriminate the how the connection will be inside the switch

picture below will show you the internal connection of diagram

Quick info: In case of tactile switch, don’t worry about pin number, all you need to know/understand is which two pins are connected together

These switches were designed for printed circuit boards, not solderless breadboards, but they’ll work OK if you straighten the pins a little bit.
