Cole 3600 Series Push/Pull is configured such that one or more positions can not be contacted without the user pulling or pushing on the switch shaft, in addition to torquing. The depth dimension of the Series 3600 increases 0.315 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.

Cole's Series 3600 one-inch diameter rotary switches are designed for aircraft, military use and demanding commercial applications in industrial controls, electronic test equipment and medical instrumentation.

Quality construction features include self-cleaning roller bearing contacts for high current carrying capacity and pure silver contact surfaces for constant low contact resistance. Hardened steel sprockets and ball bearing detent mechanisms provide smooth positive detent action and a mechanical life in excess of 100,000 cycles. Diallyl phthalate thermosetting plastic is used in the molded stators and rotors to provide the ultimate in mechanical and electrical properties.

In addition to the commercial version, a full QTL'd MIL switch is available.
