July 19, 2018 -- Larson Electronics has released a double push button switch rated for Class I, Division 1 and 2, and Class II, Division 1 and 2 hazardous locations such as chemical plants and oil refineries. This 10-amp device allows operators to control basic features in machines that do not have electrical circuits for control. The EPS-PB10-DPDT from Larson Electronics is an explosion proof single push button switch rated at 10-amps and operates on 600V AC with a choice of ½” inch or ¾” hub sizes for connection. This single push button features a switch configuration of 2 normally open and 2 normally closed. This device is double-pole, double-throw.
This explosion proof single push button switch is enclosed in a separate sealing chamber which has smooth double flanges mated with the chamber cover and the mount via stainless steel hex head screws, making the joints flame-tight. The switch side rocker arm push button has lockout holes and includes an internal ground screw. The outer exterior of this push button switch is built with copper-free aluminum finished with aluminum acrylic paint.
