This entry contains information on installing SIRIUS ACT coordinate switches in a SIRIUS ACT enclosure


Can the SIRIUS ACT coordinate switches be installed in a standard SIRIUS ACT enclosure, e.g. 3SU1806-0AA00-0AB1, or only in the special enclosure, e.g. 3SU1801-1AA00-1AA1?




The installation of 3SU1 coordinate switches with four-slot holders in a SIRIUS ACT enclosure (e.g. 3SU1806-0AA00-0AB1) is permitted under the following conditions:

  • The base plate must be removed
  • 3SU1 contact modules for front panel mounting must be used

Installation is possible both in plastic and metal 3SU1 enclosures.
