S51MXY is an ultra-small, two-axis, momentary contact joystick toggle switch package. It is engineered around the world's smallest, basic snap-action switch, and provides ON/OFF control in both the "X" and "Y" axes. This switch is used in applications where it is necessary to provide ON/OFF control to devices such as motors, or signals to controllers for positioning two-axis apparatus such as telescopes, microscopes, film viewing equipment, machine tool tables and other similar equipment.
Identical in function to the higher current 51MXY switch package described earlier in this catalog, the S51MXY is used in all similar applications, but where tighter panel layouts are desired and lower electrical ratings are tolerable.
The switch is designed for panel mounting by a standard 15/32"-32 threaded shank and hex nuts. An anti-rotation key washer engages a slot in the shank to lock it radially. All of the required mounting and locking hardware is provided with the switch. Panel thicknesses of from .030" to .094" may be accommodated.
