The micro switch is a mechanical device used to open or close connections in an electrical circuit.

It has 3 terminals:

  1. NO – Normally Open
  2. NC – normally closed
  3. COM – Common

In its non activated state COM is connected to NC.

When pressed the switch toggles the connection from COM to NO.
