This is hopefully just a simple one to fill in my inexperience. I have a busted rotary switch that I'm trying to replace and I feel like I cannot find one for the life of me, can you tell me what this switch would be called?
When I got this thing the cover had blown off the switch and strewn those little blades (and the ball bearing) around the enclosure. Just need to know how find a new one, I feel like I'm searching wrong on digikey/mouser.
My best attempt to answer some questions asked:
1) This is used to change the "light pattern" on a coloured-light grid made for children with autism. It was donated to a charity i volunteer at. 2) Very niche manufacturer of homemade-grade equipment. The entire thing is made in the UK but this particular switch is made in France. 4) Stupidly I didn't record the number of positions, I will find out when I'm there next.
My fault for not getting more dimensions, the entire thing is about 1" square but I'm sure that's not exact. I'll desolder it from the board and take proper measurements. I was hoping to buy a couple of candidates for when I go back and maybe get lucky with fit.
