Safe Emergency-Stop Buttons
Eaton’s Moeller Business Expands Its Product Range for Safe Emergency-Stop Buttons
Bonn … As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eatons Moeller business is now offering new emergency-stop buttons for the RMQ-Titan range of control circuit devices for worldwide use. The system expansion includes emergency-stop palm buttons (45/60 mm), with or without key, turn to reset, non-illuminated, illuminated, with standard LEDs or with mechanical switch position indication (green/red) in the middle of the actuating element. This last feature, for example, enables unambiguous switch position indication when mounting the emergency-stop button in a guard ring.
The emergency-stop pushbutton actuators can be made even more conspicuous on a machine or plant with an optional illuminated ring. In this way, the position of the emergency-stop button is clearly indicated, even in darkened environments. The illuminated ring indicates the operating state reliably, even from a long distance. When tripped, for example, three separately controllable LED rows can be activated as a running light. The possibility of individually labelling the illuminated ring using the Labeleditor software is also being planned.
M22 emergency-stop/off buttons with IP67 and IP69K protection are tamper-proof in compliance with EN ISO 13850 and meet European and international safety standards in accordance with EN60204 and IEC60204. Approval to UL/CSA, ATEX approval for zone 22 (use in areas with potentially explosive atmospheres) as well as approvals for shipboard use from Germanische Lloyd and Lloyd's Register of Shipping are in preparation.
