Permanent switch

Jump to: navigation, search

A permanent switch is a a signal-carrying circuit that can be modified so that it cleanly absorbs any future signals instead of allowing them to pass. Optionally there may be a separate mechanism to restore the circuit to its original function.

In the following example, a glider from the northeast (shown) will perform a simple block pull that switches off an F166 conduit, so that any future Herschel inputs will be cleanly absorbed. A glider from the southwest (also shown) can restore the block to its original position.
