    Hi,
    I just became aware of this item:

    <http://img-europe.electrocomponents.com/images/R3985229-01.jpg>

    Data sheet here:

    <http://www.pdfdoc.ru/data/pdf42805>

    It includes a 2-pole 16A contactor in that little size. Can also be ordered
    with the option of external connection for safety stop push-button switch.

    I can't find a USA distributor for these. Anybody know where to get these?

    The company is in Germany:

    <http://www.eichhoff.com/unternehmen_ueber-eichhoff_en.php>

    Or is there a domestic (USA) product that is similar?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Harbor Freight, or any number of other machine importers/sellers could
    I've searched for "No-Volt Release" (NVR) switches and have found very, very
    few here in N. America. The US definition is a full contactor inside a
    housing with a start/stop combo switch on the front. Not my idea of "min".

    Europe uses these much more.

    HF doesn't list anything like this.

    If you know of any manufacturers I'd be glad to know of them.
    That's the plan...
    Thanks,
    Dave

    TELEMECANIQUE

    Can you please give me p/n or link? I've not turned up any yet.

    Maybe I'm the dummy...

    Thanks,

    The only Telemecanique products I've been able to find are full-size magnetic
    starters (contactors).

    I'm looking for a manual start/stop switch with 2-pole contactor built-in.
    Pressing the start button manually closes the contacts and energizes a coil,
    which holds the contacts closed. Power fail opens the contacts.

    Small (micro!) is what I'm looking for. No larger than the size of a
    start/stop switch without contactor.

    Ignore the troll.
    These are sometimes called "magnetic start switches" and are commonly found on
    larger woodworking tools. I don't know if they're small enough for you but:

    At least DaveC now knows what you are.
    Still eating that stuff Queerjano.
    I told you a long time ago, Queerjano, penicillin will do wonders for that.
