Milford, Conn. EAO offers a range of durable stainless steel switches for use in harsh environments. These switches offer protection against water, dirt, chemicals, heat, shock and impact, making them suitable for operating equipment in hazardous environments.
Available in a variety of configurations, the stainless steel pushbutton switches and indicators are offered in the popular 22.5 mm and 30.5 mm sizes. If space is a concern, the switches are available with a low behind-panel depth, and for poor lighting conditions, the switches may be specified with LED illumination. They can also be laser engraved with specific symbols and legends that will not wear off or corrode.
Other options for the stainless steel switches include self-cleaning, snap-action switching elements with gold-plated silver contacts, or for particularly aggressive environments, certain switches may be specified with silver/palladium contacts. Typically, stainless steel switches require less maintenance, which translates into long term, lifecycle-to-cost benefits.
The company offers a complete family of steel switches, keypads and keyboards for industrial applications in harsh environments.
Stainless steel switch lenses are priced at $3.305 per unit in small quantities.
