What is a safety switch?

A safety switch is designed to turn off the electricity automatically if a fault is detected. This is very important, because it reduces the risk of injuries due to electrical issues.

How does a safety switch work?

A safety switch either consists of a switch by itself or a switch and a fuse or multiple fuses. The enclosure provides protection by preventing contact with electrical equipment, ensuring you don’t get hurt in the event of an emergency or faulty wiring.
