This switch is a slack cable style with 'Slow-Make - Slow Break' contacts.  This switch does NOT provide 'Positive Break' or 'Positive Transfer' features and should only be used for non-emergency, normal start - stop applications.

This momentary switch is assembled with a normally closed contact block which is held open by a spring in the switch body.  Pulling of the ring eye collapses the spring, allowing the contact block to close and actuate the circuit it is connected to.  Releasing of the rope then allows the spring to expand thereby opening the contact.

The housing and cover are molded from high impact glass-filled black polycarbonate.  The contact cavity of the switch has provision for the addition of one more contact block.

Each captive terminal will accept (2) #14 AWG stranded wires.

  • Rain tight rating for outdoor use
  • Gold plated contacts eliminate high resistance tarnishing
  • Nema 4 (Raintight), IP 66 

There are three 1/2'' NPT conduit openings.  The maximum cable recommended rope length is 33 feet with a maximum interval support of 10 feet when horizontal.

This light to medium duty switch is most often used to open and/or close an overhead door but may be used in many other non-emergency applications.

The mechanical life of the switch is in excess of 1,000,000 operations.
