Pushbutton and e-stop boxes
Carlo Gavazzi has launched several additions to its pilot device offering. The PBBOX series is a line of plastic enclosure boxes for push buttons and pilot lights. Features include a choice of one to five holes; a black base with choice of grey or yellow covers; rubber gasket between base and cover; and multiple sealed cable gland knockouts.
A push-pull mushroom head push button has also been added to the line of switches and indicator lights. The PB22SPP is available in red, in both 40- and 60-mm head sizes.
The EMPB emergency stop push button station comes with a twist-to-release emergency stop button; placard printed with "emergency stop"; contact block holder; and a choice of the type of contact block configuration (one or two contacts, snap or slow action, normally open or normally closed).
