switch, REF. 8202
This type of switch is used in furniture that utilizes sliding doors or drawers (cupboards, cabinets, wardrobes etc.). It serves to automatically turn on the light when the door or drawer is opened and to turn it off when they are closed.
It is an electromechanical switch which operates on the principle of pressure. While the door or drawer is closed, the pressure on the switch cuts off the power to the fixture. When the drawer is opened this pressure on the switch is released and the power to the fixture is restored. With such a solution, the furniture can be illuminated inside while being open. However when closed, the switch automatically turns the light off, saving energy.
