EAO Series 45 keylock switch - Safe. Robust and reliable.

The Series 45 keylock switches are robustly constructed, provide up to IP69K protection and front protection against oil and dirt.


Olten, Switzerland, April 2016 – EAO, the expert partner for innovative, intuitive and reliable Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), offers the new Series 45 that unites an extremely broad range of machine operating functions with outstanding technical characteristics. Its keylock switches, for example, are used throughout the world in order to prevent inadvertent or unauthorised operation. 

The Series 45 keylock switches are robustly constructed, provide up to IP69K protection and front protection against oil and dirt. They have a mechanical service life of 1 million switching cycles and enable the reliable switching of operating voltages from 5 to 500 V. The double-break, slow-make switching element is available with either screw or spring-type terminals and can be equipped with a maximum of 6 switching elements.

A switching angle of 45° or 90°, two or three switching positions, momentary or maintained action and various key removal positions open up a vast range of possible uses at operating temperatures from -25 °C to +70 °C. Its metal design makes the keylock switch particularly attractive. An anti-rotation device and innovative snap-on design guarantee fast, intuitive assembly without the need for special tools.
