Commonly used for operating motors on machines and other industrial equipment, a cam switch is a type of selector switch that operates by cam or camshaft, which is a modular rotating mechanism with multiple contacts, allowing for multiple configurations of power control. These switches can also handle higher amperage than other hand-operated switches.
Each switch has at least two position selections and is designed to mount on the conduit box of a motor or enclosure.
Rotate the cam, which is a modular rotating mechanism with multiple contacts, to choose from multiple configurations of power control for motors. These switches can also handle higher amperage than other hand-operated switches. These complete units include the operator and contact block and are ready to mount to the conduit box of a motor.

These operators include the switch selector dial and holder, which control the contact block (not included) in a cam switch so the switch can operate properly. When your cam switch operator breaks, choose a replacement operator that is compatible with your switch make and model.
