Limit Switches

Craig & Derricott 'Miniswitches' are a range of small robust limit switches designed substantially for industrial use. With an electrical rating of 20A and mechanical endurance figures of around 10x106 they are a very effective direct switching device.  They are available with various forms of actuator.

The range is based upon three basic switch modules:-

  • Single pole, snap action, changeover (4 terminal)      Type 'A'
  • Double pole, snap action, changeover (8 terminal)     Type 'DA'
  • Single pole, positive break, changeover (4 Terminal)  Type 'SA'

The Types as shown above denote a moulded enclosure with a plain plunger, a plunger with a protective bellows changes the 'A' to a 'B'.

Die-cast bodies are called for by the letters 'C' & 'D' respectively. Please refer to the datasheet for details.

The 'C' range incorporate a single M16 entry while the 'D' range includes two M20 on the lever options and a single M20 on the plunger version. Both items have a removeable terminal access cover.   All items ...
