Re: Tortoise switch machines

Vollrath, Don <dvollrath@...>

Jim, the MR item, July 2002 was only for multiple toggle switches. Not all that good for yard throat control. I don't remember the date of the one I was thinking of but I'll dig out my notes on the application and post it in the files section.

Yes you can have more than one rotary switch to select the yard throat route...but only one at a time. I'll add that to my posted file also.

Thanks for the info certainly makes sense to use more contacts on the one switch checked the price at Digi-Key site. Do you have the date on the article you refer to.
Is it possible to have 2 rotary switches connected to control the tortoise machines from 2 locations.
