EAO Releases Flush-Mounting Switches

EAO has launched a low-depth switch range for mounting in shallow and space-restricted areas. The Series 51 is a flush-mounting switch collection that offers a low behind-panel depth of 34mm, including the contact block. The switches are offered in a compact mono-block design for faster mounting and to provide more room for additional system components.

The range comprises illuminated pushbuttons, indicators, selector switches and key switches in a choice of sizes, shapes and materials, including hard-wearing plastic and aluminium. A variety of different lens and bezel colour combinations are also available. Up to four normally open (NO) and four normally closed (NC) contacts can be mounted per switch. The switches can accommodate a wide range of operating voltages from 10uA/100uV up to 250V/5A depending on the switching element.

EAO offers a choice of terminals including solder, solder/plug-in and PCB. With front protection to IP65, guaranteed for more than one million cycles, and compliance to all important national and international standards, Series 51 switches are suitable for panel building, machinery, lifting and moving, transportation, process control and medical applications.
