Switch Loads

Basics

Switch Loads

The load is the device that the switch turns ON and OFF.

The load is connected to an electric circuit and it consumes electric energy.
Loads are divided into inductive loads and non-inductive loads.
An inductive load contains a coil, such as a motor.
Non-inductive loads are divided into lamp loads and resistive loads.

You must select a suitable switch for the load that will be used.
