I am in the need of Three (3) small 2P3P non-shorting rotary switches. I have ones that are 1 1/4 inches in diameter. But they won't fit into the space I have. So something 3/4 to 1 inch would be OK. 1/8" shaft is not an issue. PM me please. Thanks

What voltage across the open contacts, and the highest voltage from any terminal to chassis?

OK.

Then I have to ask about current (max amps).
I generally don't worry about that in higher voltage circuits, but it can be high in LV circuits.

2P3P - which is poles, and which is position? Easiest is to state it outright with no abbreviations, or use the convention of Poles (p) and Throws (t). I've got several dozen small Grayhills, but I can't guess at poles/positions or positions/poles...

Hi N2LXM,
I suggest you contact Mark Oppat. He ought to be able to fix you up. www(dot)oldradioparts(dot)net

Thanks for the clarification - unfortunately, my Grayhill stuff is limited to 200mA at 28VDC...(51 series stuff, 5/8" round body...)

I have three NOS ceramic 3p3p with 1/8 inch shafts. The wafer is 1 inch at its widest point but the solder lugs stick out past that. Tip to tip on the solder lugs is 1.125 inches. You could easily bend the lugs to be parallel to the shaft to keep it down to 1 inch.
