The VC10 has a number of Units entitled Power Failure Switch but none with this Part No. are recorded in the 1968 inventory. This item does appear in a list of modules however, suggesting that is a sub-assembly. The function is probably to switch the Autopilot or Navigation system over to another power source or back-up equipment.
