Polar Cut Switch – 027291 (CS-490)

This cut button or cut switch is used on the front of the table on some Polar paper cutters, such as on most of the Polar 55 cutters, and most of the Polar 58E and 58EM models. (replaces Polar 027291) Its face plate is shorter (top to bottom) then on many of the other Polar cut switches.

This is an aftermarket switch, Made in USA, which is a direct replacement for most 4 pin and 5 pin cut switches. The connector pins are gold plated for long life. The switch and connector cable are pre-wired for a direct replacement. The internal switch components are a Moeller M22 modular switch assembly which is Made in Germany. (Now being made by Eaton since they were bought out.) The face measures 126 mm (4-15/16″) wide by 76 mm (3″) tall. The 5mm diameter mounting holes in the face are 104 mm (4-1/8″) apart.

The back cover of our switch assembly is installed with removable screws, unlike the original Polar switch which was glued on. This makes it possible to trouble shoot any wiring problems without having to break the back cover to get it off.

For a cut switch for some of the Polar EMC model paper cutters see our part number CS-525.
