E Series
Sub-Miniature Snap-Action Switch Modules

Features

Subminiature modules take less space than individual subminiature switches fastened side-by-side. For applications requiring 2, 3, 4 or 5-circuit control in a compact space, the special molded case design helps speed assembly since there is only one part to handle and install rather than 2, 3, 4 or 5 individual switches.

  •  3 current ratings
  •  Choice of actuator
  •  5 terminal types
  •  3 contact arrangements
  •  Long-life coil spring mechanism

  Ordering Information

Select the current rating you need. Combine the corresponding Series/Prefix number
with the appropriate suffix number for the switch type and terminals you require.

Consult table in "Terminals" section, above, for more information.

Note:  0.093" (2.36mm) Quick Connect terminals are standard.
To order solder terminals (standard ratio) add 10 to suffix.
To order 0.110" (2.79mm) QC terminals (standard ratio) add 30 to suffix.
For PCB terminals consult factory for part numbers.
Add 50 to suffix for "high ratio" switch types.

Example:  For 5A, 2-circuit, standard ratio switch module with standard terminals and no actuator order: E61-02AM.
Add a straight actuator, that becomes E61-02HM (or E61-52HM for the high ratio version).
For 0.110" (2.79mm) QC terminals order E61-32HM (or E61-82HM for the high ratio version).
For a 3-circuit version, change the "2" to a "3", order E61-33HM (or E61-83HM for the high ratio version).
