Designed for the power industry, Electroswitch offers a new compact Series 20 cam switch line with double-break, silver-plated contacts housed in rigid thermoset plastic for long, reliable life.
The new Series 20 cam switches are available in many configurations with up to 12 decks (24 poles) and up to 12 positions. Because they can be mounted on 3-in. centers, they require less space on control panels. They are also available in three basic configurations including standard, lighted, and modular.
The Standard Series 20 switches feature two-hole mounts and provide a continuous rating of 24 amps at 600 volts and an interrupt rating of 3 A/125 Vdc or 20 A/600 Vac.
Standard Series 20 Control switches have mechanical red/green targets, slip contacts for alarm and indicator circuits, pull-to-lock handles for safety lockout, and spring return to normal (vertical) position. Standard Series Instrument switches have shorting (make-before-break) contacts, 45° positive "snappy" positioning detent action, and pre-wired jumpers. Contacts are spring-loaded closed and mechanically opened by cam action to prevent sticking. The terminal screw and pressure clamp accommodates stranded wire with compatible lugs or solid wire with or without lugs. Options include 30°, 60°, and 90° detent, key-operated drives, and a choice of handles.
The Series 20P lighted switches have four-hole mounts and offer the same features, ratings, and options of the Standard Series 20 switches in addition to one, two, or three pre-wired status indicator lamps or LEDs (red, green, amber, or other color). Maintenance and circuit testing are accomplished from the front of the panel.
The Series 20M modular plug-in switches provide the features and options of the Standard Series 20 switch in modular enclosures with Burndy Bantamate Trim Trio round plug-in connectors and a quick-disconnect capability. Available with or without lamps or LEDs, these switches offer a continuous rating of 24 A at 600 V and an interrupt rating of 20 A/120 Vac, 20 A/240 Vac, or 3 A/125 Vdc. Maintenance and circuit testing are accomplished from the front of the panel without service loops.
Pricing for Standard Series 20 switches start at $80.00 with one-week lead times for stocked items and up to six weeks for non-standard items. Prices for the Series 20P devices start at $500.00 with six week lead times. Prices for the Series 20M modular plug-in switches start at $1,800.00. Delivery is eight weeks.
