Banner Engineering recently introduced the 30 mm Mount Illuminated Emergency Stop pushbutton, designed to combine status indication and safety into one. With bright, highly visible illumination, the new E-Stop is recommended for diverse emergency stop safety applications, helping provide users with enhanced safety and productivity on the manufacturing floor. The 30 mm Mount E-Stop pushbuttons provide an illuminated yellow base when the button is armed and the machine is enabled to run or is running. When the button is pushed, the yellow illumination turns to a flashing red indication to alert operators of an emergency stop condition. Users can easily reset only the pushed button or buttons, readying the device efficiently with minimal downtime. The yellow illumination can also turn to a steady red indication when a STOP condition exists by applying an external signal via the M12 QD connector. To meet diverse application requirements, the E-Stops are available with two-colour yellow and red lighting, red lighting or a non-illuminated black base. Offering a robust, IP65-rated design and 30 mm mounting base, the E-Stop pushbuttons allow installation with no assembly, individual wiring or additional enclosure required. For applications requiring a series of E-Stops, multiple buttons can be interfaced and series connected with CSS Series Hookup Cordsets. Flush (surface) mount models are also available with standard, illuminated, lockable and illuminated lockable pushbuttons.
