Approvals and Features
   Approvals       
   Your choices are...         
   CE Conformity Marks       The CE-marking is a regulatory community sign that has to be obligatorily affixed on industrial products conforming to European Union standards. However, the CE-mark is not yet a quality mark. 
   CSA Mark (US, C and US, NRTL/C)       The CSA Mark may appear alone or with indicators. If it appears alone, it means that the product is certified for the Canadian market, to the applicable Canadian standards. If this Mark appears with the indicator "C and US" or "NRTL/C" it means that the product is certified for both the U.S. and Canadian markets, to the applicable U.S. and Canadian standards. 
   UL Listing Mark       The UL Listing Mark denotes that samples of a product meet the safety requirements of Underwriters Laboratories (UL). These requirements are mostly based on UL's published Standards for Safety.

   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Dustproof       Resistant to dust. 
   Momentary On       Feature in which the switch maintains its position for only as long as it is positively loaded or actuated; returns to unloaded position when it is let go. 
   Optional Coded Outputs       Switch can be configured to provide coded output, such as BCD or Octal. 
   Weather Resistant / Waterproof       Hermetically sealed against moisture. 
   Wiping Contacts       Self-cleaning and usually low resistance. Wiping action creates mechanical wear.

Physical Switch Specifications
   Angle Between Positions:       The angular distance (in degrees) between positions. For example, for a 4-position switch, the angle of throw is 90 degrees, for a 100-position switch, the angle of throw is 3.6 degrees. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Mechanical Life:       The maximum life expectancy of the switch. Often, electrical life expectancy is less than mechanical life, please consult manufacturer. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Number of Poles:       The number of separate circuits that can be activated through a switch at any given time. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Number of Decks:       The maximum number of decks that can be attached to a common actuating shaft. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Number of Poles per Deck:       The number of separate circuits that can be activated through a switch at any given time per deck. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.

Actuator Features
   Actuator Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Actuator Detents       Mechanical mechanisms that hold a switch in a given position after actuating force removed. 
   Guarded Positions       A switch position that requires a special action, such as pushing or pulling the shaft, in order to change position. 
   Integral Potentiometer       Switch includes a potentiometer as part of the assembly. 
   Keylocking Toggle       This mechanism uses an open slot instead of a traditional toggle, allowing for the straight insertion of a key that can be toggled up (ON) or down (OFF). Keylocking toggles are used to prevent unauthorized personnel from accidentally shutting off the power or tampering with the switching of the branch circuit load. 
   Tease Proof       Prevents switch mechanism from remaining between positions after removal of force.
