  Circuitry

Contact arrangement available in choice of single pole double throw (SPDT) or single pole single throw (SPST), either normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC).

In general, normally open may be specified by changing suffix number from 00 to 01 and normally closed by changing suffix number to 02.

Example:
E13-00E is double throw
E13-01E is normally open
E13-02E is normally closed

  Ordering Information

Select the current rating you need. Combine the corresponding Series/Prefix number with the appropriate suffix number for the switch type, circuitry and terminals you require. (see Actuator Specifications table above).

Example:

E13-01E = 15A, SPST NO, with no actuator

E14-50K
= 20A, SPDT, with .902" roller actuator
