i am replacing a high speed out-hole switch but the part #17-1067 is not made anymore and the #5647-12133-12 is used as a replacement.
but #5647-12133-12 has 3 metal tabs for connections instead of 2. Do i wire it the same as the original is wired with the green wire on bottom and white wire on the lower left connector ?. It would help if you had a picture of this already connected to help me out.

It looks like the switch can be wired normally open or normally closed.
If you have a DMM put it on continuity and put one lead on the bottom tab and the other on one of the other 2.
For use as an outhole switch you should only have continuity when the switch is activated. If you have continuity until the switch is activated you have it on the wrong one of the 2.
Yes the green wire will go to the bottom most tab regardless.

tested the switch with a DMM . there is continuity when touching the bottom tab and on the lower left tab when the switch is activated.
i am taking apart the old switch and i see that the green wire goes on the bottom but i am unsure about the how the diode is used here. the white wire is attached to both a diode and a brown panel with a metal tab on it with the silver end the diode going to where the tab would insert into the switch.

i see that brown panel is a Terminal Strip . does the mounting bracket need to touch the front or back of the Terminal Strip ?

this is not same exact switch but its the right idea of the order of how the Terminal Strip,bracket and micro-switch are put together. right ?

Quoted from Matthew2015:

No, you wouldn't want the terminals to contact the mounting bracket at all as it would put stray voltage where you don't want it.

i figured the rest figured of it out.
i have soldered on the switch and it works great.
thanks for the advice.
