    • Latching / Non-Latching Switch
      • From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A latching switch is a switch that maintains its state after being activated. A push-to-make, push-to-break switch would therefore be a latching switch  each time you actuate it, whichever state the switch is left in will persist until the switch is actuated again
      • Conversely, a non-latching relay maintains its state only while being actuated. ... Anon-latching electromechanical relay is useful in control applications when the switch must return to a known state if power is lost. It is often used in push button applications such as keyboards or microcontroller input buttons
