Half-Inch One Deck Rotary Switch, Push/Pull Action

Cole 1800 Series Push/Pull is configured such that one or more positions cannot be contacted without the user pulling or pushing on the switch shaft, in addition to torquing. The depth dimension of the Series 1800 increases 0.217 in., max. to accommodate the mechanism. All other switch dimensions remain the same as standard specification.

The switch specifier has the flexibility or ordering which position or combination of positions to be isolated. Cole Instrument then inserts isolation posts adjacent to the position or positions to be isolated.

For multi-pole configurations, the first pole isolation post and stop location will determine the isolation pattern for the additional poles.

The Series 1800 enclosed switch was designed for critical ordnance applications, and demanding usage in aircraft, medical and industrial controls and instrumentation, as well as electronic equipment. This switch is available with 1 pole, 2 to 10 positions, and 2 pole, 2 to 5 positions.

Quality construction, including materials that meet the strictest standards, allows these subminiature switches to combine high current switching capacity with constant low contact resistance. Long life and high reliability are assured by exceedingly stringent inspection and testing procedures.

Available in standard solder lug or printed circuit terminations, the Cole Series 1800 and its unique design renders the switch resistant to water, contaminants and most solvents.
