Milford, Conn. EAO's new series of sealed, illuminated switches offer a variety of styles and configurations for industrial applications. The Series 04 switches offer an extensive choice of combinations, including square and round indicators and pushbuttons, rotary switches, emergency stops and mushroom-headed pushbuttons. A compact, round indicator is also available for limited space applications.
Depending upon requirements, the pushbutton/indicator lens can be flush-mounted to the front panel or raised for viewing the status from the side. An extended or sealed ring can be fitted where extra lens protection in hazardous environments is required. A wide selection of lens colors, as with engraving and film inserts for legends and/or symbols, are also available. Both the lens and lamp are easily serviceable through the front panel.
Incandescent lamps, neons, or LEDs can provide illumination with a choice of either continuous or flashing elements. Operating at relatively low current levels, LEDs have a virtually unlimited operational life and operating characteristics change little with age, said the company. Plus, they are extremely resistant to both shock and vibration.
Hard silver contacts are provided for both the Series 04 indicators and pushbuttons. However, for particularly harsh environments, silver/palladium contacts can be specified, and for switching lower currents, a gold-plated contact is available. Choices of either screw or plug-in terminals are available in both snap-action and slow-make styles. The variety of switching elements allows for switching currents from 2 mA/110 Vdc to 10 A/24 Vdc.
