Notes

This switch is something of a mystery. Compared to the SFL1102 specification, the legs protrude an extra 0.5 mm. Compared to both the French and US catalogue photographs and drawings, the fins that rest on mounting plate have tapered instead of perpendicular ends, and compared to both sets of drawings, the slider is a different shape at the top. However, S820 had at least three different designs, all marked “CLARE-PENDAR S820”. These however are unbranded.

The switch appears to be formed from fresh tooling created for the Mexico factory, but presently it remains unknown whether Clare-Pendar established this factory, or whether General Instrument did.

The internal design appears to be the same as European Clare/Pendar switches.
