P/lustre=two way switching ----- P/escada duplo estanque =Three-way switching for 2 locations
Explanation:
Infelizmente, como vc pode ver, os termos anteriores do Kudoz estão errados.

Entendo que o correto seria:
P/lustre=two way switching
P/escada duplo estanque =Three-way switching for 2 locations

Se a escada tivesse 3 interruptores seria for 3 locations.
