EAO Enhances Operational Safety with Pull-to-Release Actuation Reset

Unique feature available on durable, reliable Series 45 Emergency Stop Switches


SHELTON, Conn., May. 2017 - EAO, the expert partner for innovative, intuitive and reliable Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), enhances its operational safety capabilities with an optional pull-to-release feature on its Series 45 Emergency Stop Switches. This innovative characteristic necessitates a physical, intentional action to reset the switch after actuation

The pull-to-release feature is just one of many elements enabling Series 45 Emergency Stop Switches to reliably prevent damage to machinery, equipment and control systems in the event of a malfunction. 

A forced opening contact, along with an actuation reset requiring twist, key or pull-to-release actions, enable Series 45 Emergency Stop Switches to provide increased safety and fool-proof operation. IP69K sealing combined with impact, vibration and shock resistance allow this switch to work reliably for up 300,000 switching cycles in even the harshest environments.

These units can be customized with plastic or metal actuators in different shapes and sizes (33.8mm, 40mm or 60mm), feature optional illumination, and can be paired with accessories such as industry recognized legend plates, sealed enclosures, and protective shrouds. 

Furthermore, Series 45 Emergency Stop Switches meet all necessary global machinery specifications including DIN EN ISO 13850 and EN 60204-1, and are UL, CSA, CCC and ROHS approved
