3PST Emergency Switch 20A

Hello everyone,

I was trying to find a 3PST emergency switch with 20A DC contacts. Do you have any idea where to look? Google was not really helpful in this case (I onyl found 5-10A contacts).

Thanks for the help

Welcome to the forums.

A 3 pole switch that handles 20A should be no problem to find.
What constitutes an emergency switch...... pushbutton, toggle, etc. ?
Do you want the switch contacts normally open or normally closed ?

Google didn't help much as your use is not clearly defined.

Mushroom pushbutton switch, 3 NC contacts. I tried specifying these parameters in the search engine, but without success.

The mushroom PB's are usually set up to control a relay or contactor.

I found the switch in a 10A model. Waiting for confirmation on a 15A model but nothing larger found. You didn't specify what DC voltage either.

I will just use a relay then. Finding a switch is no problem then.

Thanks

Consider a 3-pole, 20 amp , circuit-breaker.
