EAO: IP67 Protection and M12 Connector Available for Pushbutton Switch

May 3, 2022

EAO has extended the robust Series 82 vandal-resistant pushbutton switch with an overmoulded option and M12 connector. The new version is available for selected illuminated pushbuttons within the Series 82 and offers fast mounting as well as complete front and rear IP67 protection.

It is common to expose actuators and indicators to extremely harsh operating conditions. For example, in the food and beverage industry, where alkaline cleaning agents and corrosion severely affect HMIs. In addition, external factors in the form of hard-to-remove dirt, fine dust, along with severe vibrations and blunt impacts commonly encountered in heavy duty and special vehicles applications also require HMIs to offer a very high level of resistance.

The overmoulded version of the Series 82 is capable of meeting these strict requirements offering reliable enhanced protection. These attractively designed illuminated pushbuttons feature a housing made from SUS 316L stainless steel and a Tritan light guide resistant to cleaning agents. These design features provide protection against wear and ensure consistent clarity of both the dot and the ring illumination.

The switches utilise a robust M12 connector. This connection method saves customers time when it comes to mounting as well as enabling a highly resilient HMI connection. The rear of the device is also IP67-compliant thanks to the overmoulding of the switch and connector, ensuring that the HMI has complete and reliable protection. The overmoulded version also offers very high resistance to vibrations and impact.

 

  • Vandal-resistant: Impact resistant to IK10, front protection up to IP65/IP67
  • Gold-plated silver contacts available for low voltages and currents
  • Optional single or bi-colour LED illumination and laser markings
  • Excellent tactile feedback
  • Long service life: > one million cycles of operation
