Abstract

This device has a permanent set-up board 10 of insulating material and has a plurality of etched circuits. The circuit switch positions consist of a break of approximately 1/4 in an aligned predetermined position 11 of the board. To effect switching of the circuitry, plastic card 12 is used having a row of etched bars slightly in excess of 1/4 in an aligned row on the reverse side of the card and corresponding to breaks of the set-up board.

Automatic Switch Set Up Device

This device has a permanent set-up board 10 of insulating material and has a plurality of etched circuits. The circuit switch positions consist of a break of approximately 1/4 in an aligned predetermined position 11 of the board. To effect switching of the circuitry, plastic card 12 is used having a row of etched bars slightly in excess of 1/4 in an aligned row on the reverse side of the card and corresponding to breaks of the set-up board.

Different switching notations are printed on the front side of the plastic card. To accomplish different switching arrangements, perforations are made in the plastic card at the undesired positions so as to remove the connecting bars. The switching device has a receiver for plastic cards and pressure exerting devices to force the plastic card into contact with the set-up board and effect a desired switching configuration. Each different application has its own plastic card to establish the desired circuitry connections.
