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
