Hi, Piotr. I've checked it for you: it has three terminals and shows an open
circuit between each pair in each polarity. Now you've got me puzlled! I 
thought it was an analogue switch, or may be a piezo electric transducer. 
I.e. something with a resistance. It apears that this is an ON-OFF switch.
