You are thinking of Radio Switch Corp, which is now part of Multi-
tech Industries. Tel: (800) 431-3223 Fax: (732) 409-6695
Beware of one important thing. You actually should test the switch
for your end application or find someone (outside the marketing
people) who has.
Most switch failures are voltage related, and the "catalog" or
"factory voltage rating" of switches and relays do not necessarily
correspond to anything like the actual end performance. This is
especially true with switches from CRL and RSC, as well as almost
every relay I have ever tested.
Physical size might be important to us, but will not indicate how
well the switch will work.
