  Circuitry

Double throw (SPDT) and single throw normally opened or normally closed (SPST NO and SPST NC) versions are available.

To order SPDT, use "0" before the final "A" in part number.
For SPST NO, use "1"; for SPST NC use "2".

Example:
E68–30A = SPDT
E68–31A = SPST NO
E68–32A = SPST NC

  Ordering Information

Select the current rating you need.
Combine the corresponding Series/Prefix number with the appropriate suffix number
for the actuator type and circuitry you require.
(Switch prefix for VDE approved switches must be “F”)

Example:
E65–00A = 16A, with basic momentary action actuator, SPDT
E68–21A = 0.1A, with push-pull (reset) actuator, SPST NO
F69–32A = 10A, VDE approved/International version, with dual action actuator, SPST NC
