EAO, the expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), offers its visually attractive Series 82 range of pushbuttons that are resistant to vandalism and sealed for use in harsh environments. With their robust stainless steel, brass or anodised aluminium housings, these innovatively designed switches are protected according to IK10 impact resistance and IP65/IP67 sealing requirements. The switches are available with momentary or maintained action, and with or without LED illumination. Choose from single or bi-colour LED’s and central dot or modern ring illumination.
Many HMI applications require status feedback to ensure that they function reliably or can be operated conveniently. For example, the user must be able to know at all times whether the machine or device is switched on or off. Such feedback is just as important in the food and beverage industry as it is with measurement machinery or medical devices. In harsh operating conditions such as those found in heavy duty or special vehicles, visual HMI feedback is very often useful and sometimes even indispensable. Illuminated symbols for pushbuttons also provide quick and easily understood visual recognition of operational status.
Combined with its modern Series 82 design, the added benefit of attractive symbol illumination enhances both the visual appeal and functionality of any application along with a high degree of front protection (IP65/IP67) and a long service life.
