A rotary switch features a rotating spindle on which the rotors are attached, with each rotor having an arm protruding outward that can make contact with a terminal when the switch is in a certain position. A detent mechanism positions the rotary switch, causing it to "click" into place and stay there until enough effort is applied to move it, preventing the switch from moving freely and placing it in the incorrect position.
This rotary switch has a dual pole and five positions, which means it may be linked to ten distinct electrical circuits due to its dual poles. The pole-A switches over pins 1-6 and the pole-C switches over pins 7-12. While the Pole-A is set on 1st pin at that moment the pole-C will be set on 7th pin. On the first rotation of the shaft the pole-A rotates from 1st to 2nd pin and the pole-C rotates from 7th to 8th pin and so on.
