A DPDT about-face has six connections, but back polarity changeabout is a actual accepted acceptance of DPDT switches, some variations of the DPDT about-face are internally active accurately for polarity reversal. These crossover switches alone accept four terminals rather than six. Two of the terminals are inputs and two are outputs. When affiliated to a array or added DC source, the 4-way about-face selects from either accustomed or antipodal polarity. Such switches can additionally be acclimated as average switches in a multiway switching arrangement for ascendancy of lamps by added than two switches.
