Slide Switches open and close electrical contacts by the translational motion of a level. Slide switches are available only up to DP4T. Slide switches are used to make continuous settings, for example, in music mix-and-control stations.
Slide valves are mostly the durable guillotine valves, which can stop water flow with the push of a handle. Much easier and better than ball valves because they do not restrict flow when open. These are manually controlled three way functioning valves that vent the downstream vacuum or pressure when in the OFF position, providing a simple, effective means of controlling the vacuum or pressure generation. These slide valves have been field proven for long life and maintenance free operation and are ideal for use where intermittent vacuum or pressure control by the operator is required.
