What is the difference between iron clad double pole switch and double pole single throw switch?
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. The difference between a double pole switch and a single pole switch is the use of the switch in the installation or equipment. A double pole switch is used when the voltage from two circuits has to be broken. An example of this is a 240 volt supply. A single pole switch is used where there is only a single supply voltage that has to be broken.
What effect would occur if the intermediate switch were replace by a double pole switch?
How does a double pole switch work?
A switch is inserted in series with a single wire. When the switch is on, it is as if the wire had not been opened to insert the switch. When the switch is off the wire is open and no current can flow. All a double pole switch does is allows you to switch two separate wires at the same time with the same switch action. A single pole switch just switches one wire.
Can you use a double pole switch to replace a single pole?
What is the single pole and double throw switch?
A single pole switch is the ordinary switch that is used to turn the lights off and on in your home. A double throw switch is also known as a 3-way switch in North America. A double throw switch has a single pole connected to a common screw or terminal, often black. There are 2 additional screws or terminals, often brass colored. In one switch position this pole is connected to one of these screws or terminals and in the other position it connects to the other screw or terminal. If you think of a baseball diamond as an example for this switch, in one position the base line from home to first is hot. In the other position the base line from home to third is hot.

The nearest thing is a three gang double throw switch. It is used to supply a three phase load from two individual three phase supply sources. This is the type of manual switch that can be used for emergency power switch over from utility to generator. Three way switching uses a single pole double throw switch at each end of the circuit and a cross over switch in the center position. The center switch in a three way lighting configuration is a cross over switch and a double pole double throw switch in that position will not work.
