English term or phrase: gang type switch
El término gang aparece en el siguiente contexto:

"If the switch is a multi-pole (has more than one pin that is being switched), or gang type switch (where the movement of the switch lever moves a number of switches open or closed), the symbol used on the wiring diagram can be more difficult to understand."

No sé si debo traducirlo como 'de conjunto' o dejar la palabra en inglés porque tal vez se lo conozca con ese nombre.

Muchas gracias.
Miela
