Cam switch elements for 15 A

S005 Cam switch element for 15 A

These Schaltbau switching elements are operated by cam disks, so both the operating position and the operating sequence can be determined arbitrarily.
Cam-operated switching elements are typically used as auxiliary switches of contactors and as constituents in camshaft gear, toggle switch assemblies, key switches, and applications with special requirements as to switching capacity.


  • Suitable for DC and AC applications
  • Suitable for switching low voltages and currents
  • Solid contacts, rugged design, long life
  • Reliable contact by way of bifurcated flexible contact reeds
  • Self-cleaning contacts: The tips of the flexible contact reeds wipe across the fixed contacts before full contact pressure is reached. This results in a very effective cleaning of the contact points.
  • Easy mounting with only one screw
