A selector switch can control on or off of different currents circuit by rotating the handle. Common used for control consisting of a mechanical or electrical or electronic device for making or breaking or changing the connections in a circuit. Selector switches have two positions and three positions, illuminated and non-illuminated selector switches.
A rotary switch is a switch in which the contacts and Connecting are changed when the spindle is rotated in either a clockwise or an anticlockwise direction.
Selector switches are operated by turning a knob instead of pushing a button. A very common selector switch is the MAN-OFF-AUTO switch. There are mark on the installation panel that show MAN stands for Manual and AUTO stands for Automatic.
The handle has three position states, when we rotate the handle with a clockwise or an anticlockwise direction.

A selector Switch works on a general principle; they contain a simple selector switch on the front of the panel, and a broad range of potential contact combinations, on the inside of the enclosure. The major difference between the selector switch and the pushbutton is that, while a pushbutton has a plate that pushes down both contact plungers at the same time, a selector switch has a rotating cam with ridges and flats, allowing to actuate the plungers independently.
