Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), specialist EAO, has enhanced its popular Series 45 range of panel products with the addition of selector switches that set a new benchmark for functionality, reliability, robustness, durability and aesthetic design. These new selector switches combine distinctive haptics (tactile sensation and control) for intuitive HMI control with a wide range of high-specification functions for demanding machine operation.
A wide range of choices and options are available.
Red, yellow, green, blue or white Series 45 devices are available in metal and plastic with two, three or four switching positions, up to eight contact configurations and a choice of short or long lever actuators providing momentary or maintained actions.
All the switches are available with optional illumination.
The switches provide a high degree of IP69K protection, with actuators and indicators resistant to industrial cleaning agents, oils, alkalis and other aggressive chemicals.
According to Robert Davies, EAO UK's Marketing Manager, these versatile and highly reliable selector switches offer a service life of up to 1 million switching cycles in operating conditions ranging from -25°C to +70°C.
"An anti-rotation device and innovative snap-on design guarantee fast and easy assembly without the need for special tools", Davies said.
