Abstract

954,363. Mechanical switches,without quick action; hand actuating devices for switches. ENDEVCO CORPORATION. June 10, 1960 [June 15, 1959], No. 20597/60. Heading H2B. A multi-position selector switch is operated manually by means of a wheel 30, the periphery of which projects through a window in a panel 15 and has a finger notch 34 for each switch position. Movement of a notch 34 in either direction until the operator's finger reaches the bevelled edge 15a of the window moves the switch to its next position, a locating spring 45 assisting correct registration. Each operating wheel is enclosed in a box-like case, the lid of which is formed by a printed-circuit contact board 20, and a number of cases may be mounted side-by-side as in Fig. 1, a projection 26 on each switch-case engaging a corresponding slot in the adjacent switch-case, and end plates 12 being screwed to a mounting panel. Mounted on the operating wheel 30 is a contact wiper 60 (Fig. 5) which at contact pairs 74 and 76 connects a common contact 62 to a selected one of ten digital contacts 64 connected to terminals 65 of which half are mounted on each face of the contact board 20. The arrangement is such that when a particular digit, printed on a drum portion of the operating wheel 30, is visible through the window, connection is made to the corresponding digital terminal. In a second embodiment the contacts are so arranged that the selected digit is represented in the binary code. Specification 954,362 is referred to.
