E-stop pushbutton meets OEM needs

E-stop pushbutton meets OEM needs ABB has added an emergency stop (E-stop) pushbutton to its Compact range of pilot devices. The new pushbutton is part of the 22mm Compact range aimed at OEMs and panel builders. The E-stop pushbutton is available in a ‘one piece’ design as opposed to conventional four part pushbuttons. This all-in-one function results in less stock keeping and simpler installation, while maintaining compliance with IEC60947-5-5. For the end user, the robustness of the emergency stop button is critical because its failure can have severe implications. The one piece design feature means that the risk of malfunction caused by dislocation of the contact blocks is eliminated. All devices in the Compact range have a low built-in depth of 42mm. In order to meet the exact specification of suppliers and installers, the Compact range comes in a variety of colours and versions with an extensive range of accessories. The pilot devices, which provide IP66 protection as standard, offer a choice between black or genuine chrome metal bezels and contain either one or two built-in electrically separated contacts with a ‘wiping’ action that works to prolong the life span of the contacts. The pushbutton devices with the range are available in maintained or momentary mode and can be flush or extended. Emergency stop buttons offer twist release, pull release and key release in both 30mm and 40mm variations. Selector switches come in two or three position settings are are also available as maintained or momentary devices.
