Infinite Switch Housings

Receptacle Housings For M-Style and K-Style Infinite Switches

TE Connectivity (TE) offers three and four position receptacle housings for use with M-style infinite switches and two and three position receptacle housings for use with K-style infinite switches. The M-style housings are designed for Positive Lock Mark II receptacles, but also accept FASTON receptacles. The K-style housings are designed for Positive Lock Mark II receptacles. Unlike some competitive housings, the TE housings are designed to accept both single and double crimps, potentially lowering the applied costs by eliminating unnecessary splices. These switches provide as many as seven connections. The housings are used on electric cooking ranges, space heaters, hot plates and similar applications.
