Series 45 palm switches – Intuitive and extra-large.
Thanks to its extra-large operating area, the clearly visible palm switch is ideal for use in harsh environments.
Olten, Switzerland, November 2017 – 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.
Thanks to its extra-large operating area, the clearly visible palm switch is ideal for use in harsh environments when sudden, uncoordinated movements must suffice to trigger a certain command. The device can either be operated with a flat hand, work gloves, or with an elbow.
- Extra-large operating area
- Also suitable for emergency stop functions
- Maintained or momentary action available
- Quick to install and easy to use
- Robust IP69K front protection
The palm switch is shipped pre-installed in an enclosure. The choice of switching elements provides the customer with considerable flexibility in terms of configuring their device. The cable is connected on the upper or lower front side of the housing via a metric M20 threaded connection (the screw joint and switching elements are not included in the shipment). The palm switch is available in four standard versions: either with a red lens, maintained action and a pull-to-release mechanism for the stop function, or with a black lens for momentary action.
