The Austinlite range controls switching circuits up to 45 Amps. The principle of operation is based upon a roller contact moving over a pair of fixed contacts, giving a self-cleaning wiping action.
Four contact pairs per cell offer many configurations. Contacts are moved by a common through shaft manually, whilst the switch is indexed through 45 or 90 degrees by a spring mechanism. The switch can be fully rotated or stopped to a position 1 to 8, and can be used for AC & DC circuits.
The Austinlite switch range that we manufacture is types A15 and A30 only.
