Switches and signaling units for easy operation
Switches and signaling devices are used for multiple purposes in industry, for example, to initiate certain commands, to signal status acoustically or optically as well as to draw attention to them. The range of such devices covers for example acoustic signal indicators, indicator lights, push-buttons and emergency stop buttons. These emergency stop buttons ensure a complete stop to applications in dangerous situations by pressing just one button.
Use in all industrial sectors
It is, of course, important in almost any industry to transfer commands exactly and to detect changed production conditions - such as increased machine speed. Below you will find some examples of industries where control circuit devices and signalling units play an important role:
- Mechanical and plant engineering
- Food processing and technology
- Ship building
Switches and signaling devices are indispensable in industrial automation. So that a process can be completely automated these days, qualified personnel must always be entrusted with the care and maintenance of the processes in the application.
Switches and signaling devices for every application
Automation24 carries a wide variety of items in the category of switches and signaling devices. Renowned brands such as Siemens and LED2WORK stand for reliable quality and safe operation.
It is especially important that the switches and signaling units are designed to suit the application. On and off switches that are installed in dark machine areas should ideally be Illuminated push-buttons. For environments where an acoustic signal tone is the best choice to draw the attention to changes, an acoustic signal indicator is well suited, such as the Eaton 229015 - M22-AMC . If control circuit devices and signalling units are to be installed directly in the field, a Surface mounting enclosure is the right choice, such as the Eaton M22-I4 which has four mounting locations for LED-elements, Contact elements and other warning devices/switches. You can then install, for example, an Emergency stop/off push-button, such as the M22-PV/K11. It is supplied with the required contacts to ensure easy installation.
In the category Switches and Signaling devices, Automation24 also provides Push-buttons such as the ON-button M22-D-G-X1/K10, Multiple push-buttons such as the Double push-button Eaton 216710 - M22-DDL-S-X7/X7, Mushroom-headed push-buttons such as the Eaton 216716 - M22-DP-G and Foot and palm switches as for example the Eaton 229749 - FAK-S/KC11/I. With key-operated buttons you can prevent unauthorized persons from operating your machinery and equipment. For manual control of processes, Joysticks / Potentiometers and Selector switch actuators are suitable. Visual attention to new process conditions is provided for with Compact signal lights, Status lights and Light indicators. For better orientation of switch- and control panels, a wide range of Labels helps to provide identification. Furthermore, you will find in this category Front elements for connecting a USB or RJ45 interface in a cabinet as well as extensive Accessories for control and signalling devices.
At Automation24 you find a large selection of switches and signaling units at very excellent prices. Select the switches and signaling units suitable for your application today!
