Push Button Operators provide safe interruption of circuits.
October 3, 2005 -
Intended for emergency stop applications, IEC 22 mm Push-Twist Release push buttons feature heavy-duty polyester construction, corrosion resistance, and electrical insulation. Direct-drive contacts have mechanical linkage from operator to moveable contacts to ensure contact separation when actuated. Offered in NO, NC, NO-Early Make, and NC-Delayed Break configurations, contact blocks include self-lifting captive wire clamps and accept one or two 22-12 AWG wires.

New Push-Twist Release (PTR) Expands c3controls' IEC 22mm Line!
October launches c3controls' new Push-Twist Release (PTR) push button operators. This IEC 22mm PTR push button has a rugged design that ensures reliable operation and provides safe interruption of circuits.
Designed with emergency stop applications in mind, the color and appearance, including red mushroom operators with yellow legend plates, clearly indicate this is an emergency stop operator. c3controls PTR push buttons have consistently demonstrated superior performance, even in applications with shock and vibration.
The heavy-duty polyester construction of the new PTR operators provides excellent durability, superior corrosion resistance, moisture rejection, and electrical insulation. The direct drive contacts feature a mechanical linkage from the operator to the moveable contacts to ensures contact separation when actuated, even if the contacts have lightly welded.
NO, NC, NO-Early Make, and NC-Delayed Break contact blocks are available for configuring products for virtually any control circuit application. The PTR contact blocks include self-lifting captive wire clamps, accept one or two 0.5 ~ 4mm2 (#22 - 12 AWG) wires, and have IP20 guarded terminals to prevent accidental contact with live parts.
c3controls PTR push buttons are available with 40mm and 60mm operators and a wide variety of colors. Molded bold white or black arrows indicate the twist-to-release operation for easy visibility over the life of the product. The operators conveniently install in a round 22.5mm (7/8") hole that is directly interchangeable with competitors units and eliminates the labor required for notching.
The c3controls IEC 22mm PTR operators are UL Listed and CE Marked for acceptance in global applications. In addition, they are rated Types 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4/4X, 12 and 13, and IP65 for use in the most severe industrial environments.
