EAO Enhances Transportation Safety with Glass-Mounted Pushbuttons

Series 57 Pushbuttons provide an all-in-one door opening solution for public transit systems


SHELTON, Conn., June 2017 - EAO, the expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), enhances safety in public transport applications with the availability of double-sided glass-mounting for its Series 57 Door Opening Pushbuttons. This capability solidifies these intuitive and reliable pushbuttons as the all-in-one door opening solution for passenger access control within the harsh requirements of the transportation industry.

Glass-mounted Series 57 Door Opening Pushbuttons provide the same advantages as standard front-mounted units. Single or double-sided versions can be easily affixed to one or both sides of glass – four to six millimeters thick – without the need for special tools. Furthermore, double-sided door openers are configured independently providing added flexibility to control interior and exterior functions separately or correspondingly. 

Series 57 Pushbuttons are both stylish and user-friendly featuring an extra-large operating area (74 mm) and two-independently illuminated feedback rings which comply with EN 14752 requirements. Additionally, numerous customization possibilities are available including raised symbols with optional illumination which conform to TSI RPM and ADA regulations, and integrated finding tones to assist visually impaired passengers.

These rugged pushbuttons are sealed to IP69K standards and boast exceptional shock and vibration resistance enabling them to function reliably for up to 2 million operations in harsh public environments with temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 85ºC.

This combination of durability and reliability make Series 57 Door Opening Pushbuttons suitable for a multitude of industry applications such as trains, buses, elevators and electric doors.
