EAO Introduces New Ergonomic Illuminated Selector Switch with IP67 Protection

MILFORD, Conn. – EAO Corporation, the expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces, introduces the new ergonomically designed Series 04 Illuminated Selector Switch.

With an improved design to meet an IP67 level of environmental protection, these switches also feature optional bright LED illumination and an ergonomic actuator designed to DIN5566-1 standards. The product is also suitable for a wide range of applications, including rail vehicle driver desks to machinery operating in harsh environments.

Industry standard sizes and modular construction make these selectors ideal for easy design-in or retro-fit projects.  Units are available in standard 22.5mm panel mount or 30.5mm flush style configurations in either round or square versions.  In addition, there is also a choice of two or three position actuators, with an option of combining momentary and maintained functionality on the same unit.

Bi-color illumination is also possible with red/green, red/yellow and green/yellow LED combinations.

The selector switch is equipped with a high-reliability switching element that has been tested to achieve at least 1.25 million operations at each position.  A variety of available contact configurations include silver, gold over silver and Palladium materials with a choice of screw, plug-in, or push-in terminals.
