Which is the positive, negativw and earth. On the switch it says 1,2,3 only. Thanks

Asked by: eric
The three terminals would correspond to a common, normally open and normally closed, you would have no dedicated positive, negative and earth on a switch as it is just covering a break in the power line. The common would be the incoming signal so could be considered closest to a positive. Normally closed would provide a live output until the switch is activated, at which point it would break the connection and normally open would be the reverse of this. The common would usually be marked as the one, followed by normally open and then normally closed, however we would recommend checking with a multimeter before making permanent connections.
