The best place to find a piano switch is the nearest switchboard one can find. They are available in different sizes, shapes depending on the application and a number of switches can be placed on a single switch board. Installing and changing the switch is also quite easy and anyone having a basic know-how about electricity can use these switches.
How do piano switches handle high electrical voltage inputs? How are the interior configurations of the switch designed? Why they don’t stop in between their motion? Let’s find out some interesting information about these switches in this article

Fig. 5: Spring-Loaded Lever System of Actuator
The actuator has a spring loaded lever system whose major task is to stabilize the position of the switch when it is in ON or OFF mode. The “click” sound made by the lever serves as an indication to the user that switch has been changed from on to off state or vice versa

Contact Movement: The image above shows the movement of the actuator. When the switch is in ON state, both the contacts touch each other thereby connecting the wires which are inserted in the ports and completing the circuit. The spring loaded lever gets fixed to the lower layer of the switch and rest of the structure moves with respect to it in order to put the switch in ON and OFF manner.
