16mm push buttons with enhanced functionality

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Rockwell Automation has launched a new range of 16mm push buttons for light industrial and instrumentation applications.

The Allen-Bradley 800B devices are designed to help reduce maintenance and associated downtime costs with led pilot lights that can indicate if a motor is in operation and trigger action emergency stop (E stop) devices that cease motion. The E stop Push Button features a trigger action anti tease to help ensure the E stop command disengages equipment to improve work safety.

"Push Buttons are often taken for granted, but they are the first line of defence against very expensive malfunctions," said Paul Gieschen, market development director, Rockwell Automation. "They must stand up to repeated use and the punishment of industrial environments."

According to Gieschen, the new line provides reliability by meeting global standards, including UL, CSA, CE and CCC. In addition, the entire range is constructed of durable corrosion resistant plastic materials to provide great dependability in sealing (IP65/66) and help to extend the overall product life. For improved visibility and comfort, the 800B devices offer bright, consistent illumination with an ergonomic concave shape.
