Switch Provides Unidirectional 90-Degree Indexing
WEYMOUTH, MA - A new Auxiliary Switch from Electroswitch provides unidirectional 90-degree indexing. Designated the Series 102, this new switch features up to 24 poles, making it ideal for a variety of industrial and power industry applications. A snap-action rotary switch, the Series 102 has been modified to allow lever arm activation and quick break action (approximately 10-millisecond transfer time) for DC as well as AC switching. Available in several configurations, it has been successfully used in mining, welding, telephone equipment, overhead magnets, UPS systems, train warning lights, and power source selectors.
The Series 102 Auxiliary Switch features fully enclosed decks, double-wiping contacts, and excellent performance characteristics even under conditions of extreme shock or vibration. Contacts are enclosed in molded phenolic insulating disks, but to minimize resistance and heating the stationary contacts extend outside the disks and serve as connecting terminals. Nonshorting ("break-before-make") contacts are standard, and shorting ("make-before-break") contacts are available on order. An optional "sweep" contact maintains the connection with the rotor through consecutive positions. Rotation is unlimited and continuous in both directions but can be limited to customer-specified positions.
The Series 102 Auxiliary Switch has a continuous rating of 20A at 600VAC and is available with a range of interrupt ratings (1-15A at 120-600VAC or 5-10A at 125-250VDC). Two-hole panel mounts are standard, but four-hole waterproof mounts are also available. Prices start at $30 with delivery quoted at 2 weeks ARO.
