Switching Connector

Circuit connections are switched by a combined plastic and metal connector. In the left-hand drawing, terminal block 1 has spring contact 2 that normally engages contact 3 for establishing continuity between circuit input lead 4 and circuit output lead 5.

Insertion of plug 6, right-hand drawing, results in circuit switching. Knife blade 7 has metallic portion 8 and plastic portion 9. Portion 8 connects input lead 4 through contact 2 to output lead 10. Portion 9 insulates contact 3 from the circuit to disconnect output lead 5 from contact 2.
