FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions about Switch Programs
What was a switch range?
Under the name of switch programs all components of the electrical installation are combined with which switching can be done and with which electrical connections from walls or (office) furniture in the form of sockets for different tasks are implemented.
The decisive advantage of such a program is that one can equip a living or office unit completely with a uniform design, which is adapted to the design requirements of the environment. This means that you can respond very well not only to the technical requirements but also to the design requirements of the customer.
Switch programs include wall switches and buttons, dimmers, sockets, antenna sockets, network connections, motion detectors, temperature monitors, connections for audio connections as cinch plugs and sockets as well as media connections as F- (for satellite signals), HDMI-, USB-, jack- or VGA-socket or plug. The corresponding accessories such as mounting frames, adapters or covers are available for all components.
The sockets and switches for 230 V mains voltage and many other elements are flush-mounted and surface-mounted. Some sockets have child protection or can be locked.
The switch programs in Conrad's online shop are arranged by provider. Within a provider, further selections are possible from a technical point of view.
