EAO Corporation Introduces Series 51 Stop SwitchJuly 1, 2012
EAO Corporation has announced the launch of the Series 51 Stop Switch, with a space-saving design and back panel depth of 18.8 mm, less than the width of a penny, the company said.
The Series 51 is designed for non-hazardous, heavy-use applications, having achieved testing beyond 100,000 actuations, the company said. The Series 51 is suitable for interfaces that require a visible actuation status, including: medical diagnostic equipment, handheld pendants and devices, machine and process control, instrumentation and disabled lifts.
"Using a monoblock design, the Series 51 Stop Switch minimizes back panel depth to set a new space-saving standard," said a company spokesperson. "Its design makes it suitable for applications that require ergonomics combined with reliability and durability. It is sealed to IP65 standards from the front of the panel, utilizes an industry standard 16 mm mounting hole and meets many international standards, including CE, EN 61058-1 and RoHS environmental requirements.
"The Series 51 Stop Switch uses EAO's low-level, snap-action switch element technology, making it suitable for applications across a variety of current and voltage ranges. Solder, quick connect and PCB terminals, along with a variation of N.O. and N.C. contact configurations, are featured. Initially available in a low signal level switching element with 2.0 mm plug-in, solder or PCB mount connection, the Series 51 provides a single-break momentary contact switch system with two contacts per switching element and a combination of N.C and N.O. contacts.
"Another feature of its single-piece, monoblock construction is the ability to specify a complete unit within one part number. This can increase both design and purchasing efficiencies by only requiring the itemization of a single part number within a bill-of-materials or purchase order."
