Italian term or phrase: opportuno switch
Context: "Convertitore a 4 uscite indipendenti, utilizzaile per servire fino a 4 appartamenti indipendenti mediante opportuno switch."

Can anyone tell me what "opportuno" means in terms of using switches, or is this a specific type of switch? Thanks in advance.

English translation:appropriate switch
Explanation:
by means of / with the appropriate switch

is all that this means. Opportuno/opportune is not a specific brand or specific type of switch other than being the appropriate one for the purpose!

Thanks for confirming that the obvious or literal sometimes is the right answer. ; ) "special switch" is the more common terminology I think.
