Rotary Auxiliary Wiping Contact Switches

Rotary Auxiliary Switches


Rotary Auxiliary Wiping contact switches are modular in design and are very versatile for switching a.c. as well as d.c. resistive & inductive loads. They are used as auxiliary contacts in equipments such as HV - Gas Circuit Breakers and various equipments where in it is linked mechanically to the equipment and follows the position as per the linkage. In most cases a straight motion of main contacts is converted into rotational through links & levers.
