ROTARY SWITCH RANGE

TYPE PX Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose rotary wafer switch from our smallest range of open frame switches.

Featuring a coiled spring mechanism with four different torque settings, the PX is a customisable, versatile switch

using our 23.8mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic, mechanism materials are of high quality mild steel and brass. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PX being available with spindles of diameter from 3.18mm to 6.35mm. Ideal for space saving. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE PXM Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose rotary wafer switch from our smallest range of switches

Featuring a cast housing fitted with leaf springs, this mechanism torque can be simply asjusted by the addition or removal of the leaf springs. As with the PX, the PXM is a customisable, versatile switch using our 23.8mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic, mechanism materials are of die-cast aluminium. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PXM being available with spindles of diameter from 4mm to 6.35mm. Ideal for space saving due to its low overall profile. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE PXR Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose open frame rotary wafer switch from our smallest range of switches

Featuring a pressed mild steel, zinc plated mechanism, with brass bushing and fitted with leaf springs, this mechanism torque can be simply asjusted by the addition or removal of the leaf springs. As with the PX, the PXR is a customisable, versatile switch using our 23.8mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PXR being available with spindles of diameter from 3.18mm(for dual concentric mechanisms) to 6.35mm. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE PY Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose rotary switch from our mid-range of wafer switches

Featuring a pressed mild steel, zinc plated mechanism, with brass bushing and fitted with a coiled spring, this mechanism torque comes in four variations. As with the PX, the PY is a customisable, versatile switch using our 31.8mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PY being available with spindles of diameter of 6mm or 6.35mm. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE PYR Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose open frame rotary wafer switch from our mid-range of open frame switches

Featuring a pressed mild steel, zinc plated mechanism, with brass bushing and fitted with leaf springs, this mechanism torque can be simply asjusted by the addition or removal of the leaf springs as required. As with the PX, the PYR is a customisable, versatile switch using our 31.8mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PYR being available with spindles of diameter of 6mm or 6.35mm. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE PYHD Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose rotary wafer switch from our mid-range of DAP moulded wafer switches

Featuring a pressed mild steel, zinc plated mechanism, with brass bushing and fitted with a heavy duty coiled spring mechanism. The PYHD is designed for use where the switch is likely to be used hard. As with the PX, the PYHD is a customisable, versatile switch using our 31.8mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PYHD being available with spindles of diameter of 6mm or 6.35mm. In addition the PYHD is available as a robust spring return switch. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE PZ Rotary Wafer Switch

A multi-purpose open frame rotary wafer switch with a maximum of 24 positions.

Featuring a pressed mild steel, zinc plated mechanism, with brass bushing and fitted with a coiled spring, this mechanism torque comes in four variations. The PZ is an ideal switch for High-End Audio and for stepped attenuation. As with the PY, the PZ is a customisable, versatile switch using our 38mm diameter wafer. Our wafers are moulded DAP thermoset plastic. Available with metric and imperial shaft and bush options, with the PZ being available with spindles of diameter of 6mm or 6.35mm. In addition the PZ is now available as a robust dual concentric switch. Solder and PC terminals available in plain brass, silver plating and gold plating (up to 5 Microns on request).

TYPE BE12 Enclosed Rotary Switch

The BE12 is a new switch based on our Mil-Spec Minibank switch.

This enclosed switch is made in the UK factory using high quality materials to produce a robust yet relatively compact rotary switch. With an overall diameter of 18mm, the BE12 is available as a 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P switch, in both shorting and non-shorting and with either metric or imperial shaft and bushing. With a maximum of 12 positions as a 1 Pole switch, the BE12 is a good choice for small spaces. With terminals that can be used both as solder and PC without having to order a different switch, the BE12 like all our switches can be supplied with either silver or gold plated contacts.

TYPE MBK (Minibank) Enclosed Rotary Switch

The MBK is a mult-purpose enclosed rotary switch with Mil-Spec codification.

This enclosed switch is made in the UK factory using high quality materials to produce a robust yet relatively compact rotary switch. With an overall diameter of 18mm, the MBK is available as a 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P switch, in both shorting and non-shorting and comes in three variations A, B and C to suit a variety of environmental conditions. With A being unsealed, B fully sealed and C panel and spindle sealed. The Minibank is codified to NATO NSN 5930-99 Codes.

TYPE 72 Rotary Contact Stud Switch

A multi-purpose contact stud rotary wafer switch.

Formerly the Painton/Plessey/Winkler switch, the 72 features a double coiled spring mechanism available with a maximum of 30 positions as a 1P shorting switch. The 72 is available in 1 Pole, 2 Pole, 3 Pole and 4 Pole variations in both shorting and non-shorting. Silver or gold plated, the mechanism is made out of high quality materials, with a stainless steel 1/4" diameter shaft. The 72 is a Mil-spec switch coded to NSN 5930-99.
