Cam Switches

OMY
ECON Elektra B2N series cam switches
E
RANG The B2N cam switch design features two half shells that carry the fixed and
moving contacts. These contacts are operated by cams which are fixed to a steel
shaft. This shaft is non-adjustable.
The steel shaft ensures positive switching, while over-switching is prevented by
steel detents and stop washers.
The simple assembly with few compact parts gives the switch not only a higher
mechanical strength, but also important advantages in economy.
The B2N series is available in the single rating of 20 amps AC 21 (static load) and
5.5 kW AC 23 (motor load). By utilising from one to four chambers the B2N range
are available in on/off switches (1 to 4 pole), changeover switches (1 to 4 pole),
reversing and 2 speed switches, and ammeter/voltmeter switches.

NEW Elektra V2N, V3N range of cam switches


The new range of V2N and V3N cam switches replaces VN20 and VN32
respectively.
They take into consideration the International standards VDE 0660 and
EN 60 947-3, back of hand protection, according to DIN 57 106 with opened
connecting terminals the V2N/V3N may be used as control, instrument, motor and
main switches.

Elektra VN standard cam switches from 50 to 250 amp AC 1


The conventional method of constructing a cam switch is chamber by chamber
each chamber having 2 contacts.
This means that by varying the number of chambers and the cams, an extremely
large number of switch programmes can be achieved. NHP assembles this type
of switch in Australia.
The VN range is available in 7 frame sizes rated as follows - AC 21/AC 23
50 amp/22 kW, 63 amp/30 kW, 115 amp/55 kW, 150 amp/75 kW, 250 amp/90 kW.
As with the B2N switch, the VN range is constructed with a steel shaft to give
VN cam switch
reliable operation into the future.
Also, the contact chambers are well sealed against the ingress of dust which can
cause contact failure in other switches.

DESIG Elektra T series enclosed industrial switches
This very popular range of switchgear is mostly used as a local isolator, reversing
and changeover switch for motor loads and machinery. They are available in
either metal clad or in a strong moulded insulated material. Spare interiors are
available for very frequently used installations.
Available ratings are (AC 21/AC 3):- 25 amp / 8 kW
45 amp / 16 kW
63 amp / 24 kW.

VN "special"
locally assembled switches

The construction of your special Elektra rotary cam switches ensures that a
large number of switching combinations are possible. This, coupled with
the accessories that can be supplied, makes the Elektra range one of the
most comprehensive and a first choice with design and electrical engineers.

All Special locally assembled switches and NHP fitted accessories must
be ordered at time of ordering switch and can not be ordered separately for
fitting by the customer.

Accessories
NHP fitted accessories for the Elektra cam switch range enable standard switches
to have personalised features including:
Spring return feature
Add on auxiliary contacts
IP 65 weatherproof kits
Key operation and key interlocking
Door couplings
Extended cable terminations
Base plate mounting
Extended shafts
Protective boots

Other options
Engraving
Specially built cam switches can often require particular engraving on the front
plate. This can be supplied as requested, refer to Special engraving

Gold contacts for PLCs


Elektra V2N cam switches can be fitted with GOLD contacts for use in very low
voltage switching (PLCs).
