Hey all,

I'm racking my brain and wearing out every website. Does it not exist: a 2-deck, 1-pole rotary switch that would mount flat to the PCB without a 90 degree mount?

I'm wanting to mount four rotary switches (for an EQ) to the front panel and have the PCB mounted flush up to the backs of the switches.

To be honest I don't think they do. The best I have seen is 2 pole 6 ways but I guess you want a lot more than that.

What do you need as far as poles and throws? You might be able to get what you need in single deck. Elma has lots of options.

The best I can find is the ELMA MR50 which is available as 2 poles 8 ways.

I thought they allowed combinations of 24 per wafer. But looking it up now it can sometimes be less, the 04-1213-20 gives 2x11. Would that work?

http://www.commutatore.com/ Maybe has something for you (check the screenshot). They do 23 positions per pole for this switch.

On the right angle types they do but not on vertical mounting ones to the best of my knowledge.

Even finding 90 degree versions in stock is proving more difficult than I expected.

Grayhill

Series 71, PC pins, 30 degrees, 2 decks, 1 pole per deck, adjustable stops, shorting
Seems like no one carries this without special order. The non-shorting versions are available.

For an EQ, do you think its necessary to have "shorting," or will "non-shorting" be sufficient?

ruffrecords

Non-shorting is generally what is used.
