EAO extended its Series 84 industrial switch range to include a compact, illuminated emergency-stop switch. The emergency-stop has a mono-block design and bright LED illumination, visible even from the side. It shares the same 22.5mm mounting size and low behind-panel depth with the other Series 84 products. The full range features a choice of LED- or filament lamp-illuminated pushbuttons and indicators. Switching elements can be supplied with an integrated LED in red, yellow, orange, green, blue or white. The illuminated version is available in aluminum or plastic.

A double-blade, snap-action switching mechanism ensures tactile operation and guarantees reliable switching even of very light loads. With a maximum rating of 42V at 50mA, these switches are suitable for programmable logic controller-level signals. All Series 84 products can be connected by plug-in terminals or 300mm flying leads, which enable them to be safely adapted to PCBs of different heights. They can also be supplied with a variety of cable lengths and connectors.

The new switch is available today at under $15 each in small quantities.
