Default 8PDT and 5PDT push switches wanted

Hi,

Im looking for a couple of multipole push button panel mount switches, one with 8 switches, the other with 5. Ideally latching but thats not crucial.

They are to switch in/out a couple of lipo battery monitor units, which needs all the connections switching at the same time.

If anyone can help me out?

Hi Martin, RS used to do switches like this that could also be stacked and interlocked.
You could also use relays. PO 3000 types can be had up to 8P c/o, or use 2, 4P types paralleled.
I take it current and voltage needs are not too high.

No room for relays im afraid. I have been using a D type socket with a corresponding plug to link across, but its not reliable, leading to the low battery alarm sounding. The battery takes up almost all the room in the battery case (repurposed clansman 4Ah NiCd). Voltages go up to about 30v but the current is miniscule.

Not push but slide would these do?https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8P2W-8-Po...EAAOSwF2hcxiat.
