Electronic Components for the
Meccano/MeccanIC system.
Single switch mounted on a simple plate.  These plates could be provided with a bend in them but this is probably adequate
A relay mounted on a Meccano plate.  Smaller relays could also be used but are of course more fragile.  DPDT relays are more useful for our purposes.
Small mircoswitch mounted on a Meccano plate.  Note that this plate is the same size as was shown on the larger microswitch.
Paired switches are nice because one can be an on-off switch and the other can be a DPDT reversing switch or control a relay or a second motor.  Flexibility is the key requirement for the MeccanIC system
