Space Saving Switches for Cutting Edge Control Panels

For high-tech operator controls

EAO Series 51 EAO Series 51

SHELTON, Conn., January 2019 – EAO Corporation of Milford, CT, a premier global supplier of Human Machine Interface (HMI) Components and Systems, offers space saving industrial switches suitable for high-tech operator controls. The Series 51 switch range is attractively designed to occupy less space behind the panel – just 34mm including the contact block for a pushbutton.  This benefit eases restrictions for panel designers as contacts can be stacked to provide additional space for other system components. This advantage is of high value in flat panel touchscreen interfaces, wireless remote controls, handheld pendant controls, or any piece of equipment where behind-panel space is limited.

The wide range of functions within EAO’s Series 51 is comprised of expertly-designed illuminated pushbuttons, stop switches, indicators, selector switches and key switches in a choice of sizes, shapes, and materials – either hard-wearing plastic or durable aluminum for harsh application environments. Many lens, bezel, and color combinations allow for an easily customizable look and feel.

Configurations of up to four normally-open (NO) and four normally-closed (NC) contacts can be mounted on select switches. Depending on the switch element, the Series 51 can accommodate a wide range of operating voltages from 10μA/100μV up to 250V/5A. EAO offers a choice of terminals including solder, solder/plug-in and PCB.  With front protection to IP65, a mechanical lifetime guarantee for more than one million cycles, and compliance to all important national and international standards, EAO’s Series 51 are suitable for applications within machinery, process and automation control, heavy-duty lifting and moving equipment, transportation, and medical devices.
