Industrial switches and E-Stops
16 May 2018, Switches, Relays & Keypads

RS Components has introduced two new series of switches that target maintenance engineers and machine and panel builders, and deliver intuitive machine safety control in a wide variety of industrial applications. Developed by EAO and now available from RS are the Series 61 compact emergency-stop switches (E-Stop) and the Series 45 industrial switches.

Designed to reliably protect people and equipment against injury and damage, the Series 61 E-Stop is ideally suited for use in handheld control units; alternatively, it can be mounted within easy reach or directly onto a machine. Capable of withstanding harsh industrial use, the Series 61 is made from hardy materials and has a robust build quality that meets IP69K, as well as providing IP67 protection. Typical applications include handheld control units, production and plant machinery, construction machinery, and agricultural machinery and vehicles, as well as for control panels in a range of industrial equipment and devices.

Ideal for use in space critical applications, the Series 61 also has a robust mono-block design, and a foolproof trigger action compliant with EN 60947-5-5 and EN 13850, as well as a green indication ring to show switch actuation. Other key features include a highly compact back-panel depth of only 21,2 mm, and an optional high-brightness 24 V d.c. LED, which makes the product clearly visible even in low light levels.

The Series 45 switches are designed for easy assembly and installation into 22 mm or 30,5 mm cut-outs and are available in a plastic, shiny metal or matt metal finish. The 30,5 mm mounted metal version has a low profile, flush mount design. The series is robustly constructed and offers an IP69K protection rating and long-life LED illumination. Features of the switch include a mechanical life of one million switching cycles and reliable switching from 5 to 500 V. In addition, the double-break slow-make switching element is available with either screw- or spring-type terminals and can be equipped with a maximum of six switching elements.
