I have worked on several Touch Plate systems and was able to get parts from them, this time it is a GE system. The momentary switches function differently than the Touch Plate ones, does anyone know a source for these?
Thanks.. Brian

Well not exactly. I did locate these: http://www.alltestequipment.com/cgi-bin/pdc/viewprod.cgi?pid=559&tid=1&type=elec

They mount sideways in handy boxes set in the plaster.

Now I just need a couple relays.

Thanks for the help.

you can get relays from grainger or any refrigeration parts house.
are you looking for NO, NC, latch on or without the latch-on?

I would expect that the relays used are GE RR-7 or RR-9 relays. I'd be really surprised to see those at a refrigeration parts house. Electrical distributors who handle GE lighting controls should have them, though. There are commonly used (even today) in commercial lighting systems.

Yes it is a RR-7. I called GE Presco today, they have them for thirty dollars less than the ones I found on the internet. Thanks for everyone's help.

Yes they sure are, I run into them used in many lighting control systems, even lighting controllers that are not made by GE use the GE relays.
