The new line of Eaton M22 pushbuttons establishes a new level of versatility, safety and reliability, the company says. The line includes pushbuttons, selector switches, pilot lights, mushroom operators and e-stops, as well as new and unique products such as palm switches, four-way buttons, buzzers and communicating devices. Featuring a tactile and ergonomic design, the M22 product line also includes LED indicators. The light emitting diodes are vibration proof, can function for 100,000 hours, and provide safe, reliable, ultra-bright and economical lighting.

Standard pushbuttons and contact blocks have a mechanical life of more than five million operations. The devices help with device, legend plate and enclosure marking, since all indicator lights, pushbuttons, legend plates and enclosures in the M22 product line can be inscribed with text or symbol via laser etching. Laser etching provides clarity and durability for standard or customized needs. For modularity, M22 allows for field conversion of pushbuttons and selector switches to maintain and momentary functions. Optional spring cage style terminations enable faster installation and reduced labor costs.

Using the Actuator-Sensor Interface (AS-i) network, M22 pushbuttons provide efficient machine communications, and reduce signal paths and wiring costs. The pushbuttons meet IEC/EN 60 947, UL, CSA standards and certifications for shipping and marine requirements. M22 devices have IP66 protection for harsh industrial environments and ergonomic design for OEMs, end-users and system integrators who value front panel aesthetics, maximum flexibility, and high quality construction, Eaton says.
