  • Switches - Need a TPTT

    Heyas,

    Does anyone know where to purchase (if they are even made) mini Triple Pole Triple Throw switches? I could get away with a DPST and DPDT switch or a relay network, but I'd rather just have it be a simple, single switch. Thanks,

    Aux

    they are uncommon and may be hard to find- rotary switches can be many pole many throw tho

      I considered that, but I am having a hard time finding a knob small enough that'll work. The entire knob diameter must be about 0.75" as I'm putting a series of LEDs, buttons, and switches in the area shown in the image below. This is the molding that goes around my gear shift:

        most rotary switches have a 1/4" shaft, and radio shack has knobs that are 1/2" diameter.
        But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

          Bonus! Thanks. Guess I'm so used to not checking radio shack that it's become a habit to go to Digikey first.

          I actually did just find a part that would work for my situation. Made by ITT Cannon, PN 7411J1V3BE2. Digikey has 'em for $10 (and I'd have to order 1,000 of em!), so in this case, the Shack and rotary switch might actually be the way to go. Go figure!

          Thanks again.

            Check out this website they have a lot of switches and stuff. I didn't see 3p3t sitches but maybe you can find something useful.
