Importing or creating a sp3t (on-on-on) switch for multisim?

Highlighted

hi,

 

I'm new to multisim so pls be gentle 😉

 

I need a switch with more than two on-on positions for a project but can only see a spdt switch in the database. Is there such a thing as a sp3t (on-on-on) switch that I can download/import. I've searched and search but dont seem to be able to find one or make one.

 

Any help much appreciated. 

 

Thanx in advance,

dean.

There is a 4POS_ROTARY switch in the SUPPLEMENTARY_SWITCHES family that you can use to simulate with. You would need 2 of them and just not use POS 4. If you are going to layout a board and need a footprint, you would need to create it.

It doesn't look like there are any components which meet your spec. As mentioned above, I think the closest you can get at the moment is a rotary switch, and just skip one of the positions. Post back if you find or make an sp3t though, it would be a useful one to add to a database for other people to access.

deanxxx,

 

Hope this helps...  Its a SP3T derivative of the interactive 4POS Rotary switch that you've found previously.
