Contactor switching circuit

Hi, I need a schematics drawing created.
I have 3 contactors and a 4 position switch.
Position 1 of the switch turns on contactor 1.
Position 2 turns on contactor 1 and 2
Position 3 turns on contactor 2
Position 4 turns on contactor 1 and 3

All contactors are the same voltage (230v)
Thanks

Surely that isn't the control voltage for the contactors is it? The control voltage is the important one here not the contactor switched voltage. What type of switch is doing the control of the contactor? Rotary, toggle, or?

You could very easily do it with 4 small cube control relays fed from each switch to form the logic sequence required.
Max.

The control is 24 v
And the switch is a 4 way rotary

"And the switch is a 4 way rotary"
Is that one pole, four position? Break-before-Make or Make-before-Break?

If 24VDC: SP4T Break-before-Make switch, 3 cube relays and 6 steering diodes
