The Power Switch can interrupt the flow of power through a cable much like a Pipe Valve does for water. Unlike the valve, however, the switch does not need to be placed on top of an existing cable. It can be placed between two cables since it creates a cable underneath it. Note that the power switch will be ON when installed.

To manually set the switch on or off, left click the object in game and select an option from the menu. To quickly flip the switch, right click it.

Note: By connecting a door timer to a power switch you can create an automatic power switch which can be used to turn lights for cells on and off at certain times of day.

If connected with a wire as an output, the power switch will output a high signal if turned on, and a low signal if turned off. If connected as an input, it will turn on when receiving a high signal but will not change its state when receiving a low signal.
