MAGNETIC SWITCH, TUBULAR
Magnets are found in all kinds of restaurant equipment and serve many purposes. Magnets are useful for their "stickiness" with ferrous metals. In the simplest foodservice equipment designs they are used to keep swinging doors secure on rolling service carts. Some more complex uses integrate magnets with motorized systems to provide contactless magnetic drives as seen in certain high volume blending systems.
In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can disconnect or connect the conducting path in an electrical circuit, interrupting the electric current or diverting it from one conductor to another. The most common type of switch is an electro-mechanical device consisting of one or more sets of movable electrical contacts connected to external circuits. When a pair of contacts is touching, current can pass between them, while when the contacts are separated no current can flow.
