Crater Ltd Eng Rotary Cam Switch – 6 positions 4.5mm D Shaped Shaft OM0292b


SKU: OM0292b Category:


Crater Ltd 


Rotary cam switch Part no. J8E6 Wave-1  

6 Position 5 switches

10A 250VAC  

Connection via 10 x 6.3mm (old 1/4″) push on spade terminals ( could be soldered if required)

The switch consists of a rotating cam that operates 5 separate switches

There is an off position where none are on 

As the switch shaft is turned the separate cams operate each switch according to the positions on the cams

The shaft and cams can be re set by removing a cir-clip on the knob side of the shaft to free all cams and spacing bushes

The cams could then be re positioned and set with the spacing bushes provided and locked by replacing the cir-clip

Each switch comes with a vitreous enamelled W22 390R (Ohm) resistor

4 of the 5 switches are linked one side by a copper strip 

These are a vintage part we believe Crater Ltd are no longer trading so we have no technical data 

Having been in storage for years we have classified them as ‘new other’ however they are perfect in every way

Demonstrated being used with control knob in final pictures

We Purchase Surplus Stock!!!

If you or your company has items similar to the above, or indeed any electronic components surplus to requirements, please contact us with details as we are keen to increase our stock profile.

 As many of our lines come in to us as surplus – sometimes from high end ‘Milspec’ type manufacturers we try to pass on our savings to our customers – often selling industrial grade or military spec components at a fraction of their original cost.
