Coaxial Multi-Throw Switches

​What is the difference between Failsafe and Latching?

Failsafe switches are Normally Open; when a position is energized, the Open contacts will Close, until voltage is removed. It will then revert back to the Normally Open position. Common applications is where a default known state is required.​​

Latching switches will remain in the last energized position until the next position is energized. ​It is commonly used in applications where power consumption is critical or limited.​
