Series 3000 Solenoid Pushbutton Switch


Multiple Series 3000 Switches can be wired electrically to create an electrical interlocking series of 2-12 stations (baiilng circuit)

  • Solenoid hold down switch
  • Electrically energized coil
  • Circuitry 2PST – 6PDT
  • Multi switch bailing circuit capability
  • Metal case switch
  • Multi switch interlocking assemblies

Electro-Mech Series 3000 Solenoid Hold Down Illuminated pushbutton switches offer added panel and system control flexibility in a combined reliable lighted PB switch (2PST to 6PDT), and electrically energized solenoid holding coil.

When the coil is energized, the switch will be held in the down position after being actuated. When the coil is de-energized, the switch returns to its relaxed position. When the coil is not energized, the switch functions as a momentary action switch. When external power is supplied to the solenoid coil, the switch can be remotely released.

Twenty-four standard models are available, in a variety of normally open (N.O.) and normally closed (N.C.) circuit configurations.

Double throw circuitry units are available 2PDT to 6PDT, with either 12vdc or 28vdc solenoid coils:

12vdc coil rated at 90mA, 133 ohms + 10%
28vdc coil rated at 60mA, 500 ohms + 10%
