As the leading manufacturer of Open Frame Switches, Electroswitch is well known throughout the electronics industry. These versatile switches incorporate their patented double wiping contacts which are self-cleaning and require no maintenance during life under normal operating conditions. The self-cleaning action assures a clean, positive contact capable of wiping through accumulated particles or dust, oxides, and other contaminants.
Both unidex and ball bearing indexing are available. Unidex, a major improvement in indexing switches, is a dual ball detent indexing on a starwheel. This detent offers 100,000 cycles of mechanical life, with the torque remaining constant and crisp throughout the life of the switch.
Ball bearing indexing is offered in single, dual, or tri-ball indexing over a hill and valley or punched hole plate. This index is common to Electroswitch's Type L and Type MF switches.
Electroswitch's Open Frame Switches have been used successfully for decades in the aerospace industry, test and measurement equipment, and demanding military applications.
