EAO, the expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces, has unveiled some ground-breaking new products for passenger access, drivers’ desks and rail vehicle control panels.

Representing the latest in technology, the new Series 57 pushbutton is the first all-in-one door-opener to combine optical, tactile and acoustic features in a single pushbutton.

Fully compliant to EN 14752, TSI-PRM and ADA standards, it features an extra large Ø74mm operating area, the option of an integrated finding tone, and a tool-less final mounting system.

A new Series 57 warning light is also available for use alongside the pushbutton to make people aware when passenger doors are opening or closing. It is front protected to IP69K and features an extra large lens with optimum 180-degree visibility. It mounts using the same fast, tool-less final mounting system.

Series 57 products will fit industry-standard mounting holes so vehicle operators can easily upgrade their existing door openers.

For drivers’ desks and other control panels, EAO offers Series 04 switches and pushbuttons constructed in accordance with UIC 612 guidelines. The 04 range includes square and round pushbuttons, indicators, selector and keylock switches as well as special lever switches for operating specific controls, typically braking and lighting.

A push-in terminal from Phoenix Contact is available for the Series 04 range, which reduces assembly times by up to 70% compared to screw terminals and creates a more secure, reliable connection.
