A new low-depth switch range for mounting in shallow and space-restricted areas has been launched by EAO, the expert partner for human machine interfaces.

The series 51 is a versatile flush-mounting switch collection which offers a low behind-panel depth, just 34mm including the contact block. With a compact mono-block design, they mount faster and easier, and provide more room for additional system components.

The range comprises expertly-designed illuminated pushbuttons, indicators, selector switches and key switches in a choice of sizes, shapes and materials – hard-wearing plastic and aluminium. Many different lens and bezel colour combinations are possible to create the best functioning and looking controls.

Up to four normally-open (NO) and four normally-closed (NC) contacts can be mounted per switch. They will accommodate a wide range of operating voltages from 10A/100V 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 are suitable for panel building, machinery, lifting and moving, transportation, process control, medical or virtually any type of use.
