Switch collection ASM MEXICO S88010 E9
This switch may forever remain a mystery. The Pendar (France) part number is SFL1102, and the Pendar (USA) part number appears to be S88010 E9, although the catalogue page that I have from an unknown company depicts S88010 E9 as illuminated (which should be S88010 J7 E9, or E9 J7).
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.
The switch appears to be formed from fresh tooling created for a Mexico factory, but presently it remains unknown whether Clare-Pendar established this factory, or whether General Instrument did. The moulds for this switch did not entirely follow the French/Belgian schematics for the SFL series.
The internal design appears to be the same as European Clare/Pendar switches.
