A switch interface is a device which is attached
between the switch and the toy/device you want to control.
There are several switch interfaces available for switch
use and enhancement.
The battery adapter is the interface
that can transform any battery operated toy or device
for switch activation.
The Environmental Control Unit (ECU)
is an example of an interface for any electrical appliance
with a plug. The unit is plugged into an electrical
outlet; the appliance and switch are then both plugged
into the unit. The switch turns the appliance on and
is an interface used between the switch and the target
device. One touch of the switch turns the device on.
The device stays on until the switch is activated again.
This is often used for prolonged activities, such as
listening to music or TV.
Timer is an interface used between
the switch and a toy, game or other device. The device
will run for a set amount of time (from 1 to 60 seconds)
after the switch is activated. The device stops after
the pre-set time is reached (even if the switch is held
on); the switch must be re-activated for the device
Switch Latch-Timer is an interface
that offers both features: timer and latch.
Series Adapter is an interface used
between a device and two switches. Both switches must
be activated in order for the device to turn on. This
is often used for cooperative activities, where two
children must activate their switches at the same time.
Jack Adapter is used to convert the
size of the switch jack to match the size on the toy
