  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:  
E61-01A is normally open.
E61-02A is normally closed.

These part numbers offer advantages in lower minimum order quantity and typically shorter lead times.
  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. Module construction not available for E64.

Example:  To order the E61-50R with 0.110" (2.79mm) QC terminals, order an E61-80R.

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

Example:  The basic E61-00A becomes E61-30A for 0.110" (2.79mm) QC terminals.
