Original Press Release:



Switches Plus Reacts to Regulations for Visually Impaired



Switches Plus introduces a new black-and-white double On/Off switch to the range of economically-priced RoHS compliant Series 44 industrial controls.

This product features a large, illuminated central lens to indicate the status of equipment. It can be supplied with or without the engraved "I and 0" symbols, and with either a matt grey or chromium-plated case.

It is intended for use wherever there is an On/Off function, particularly within the machinery and process control sectors, where manufacturers should replace the red/green versions to comply with new regulations for visually-impaired users; these regulations govern the use of equipment by those who may find it difficult to distinguish between red and green On/Off positions.

This product is offered with a self-cleaning, slow make switching element and lamp block; illumination is provided by either LED's or Ba9s (T-3¼ bayonet base) lamps.

Switches Plus also offers a similar switch in a red/green combination. Other economically-priced control switches from the Series 44 range include pushbuttons, indicators, selectors, mushroom-headed switches, potentiometer drives and EN418 rated Emergency-stops.

All products use screw terminal connections and are sealed to IP65 standards. Completely sealed and illuminated Series 44 dual pushbuttons with 1 N.O./1 N.C. contacts, start slightly above $15.00 per unit in small quantities and are readily available from stock.
