RAFI releases emergency-stop pushbutton

June 9, 2015 - RAFI releases emergency-stop pushbutton with an installation height of only 25.9 mm from the front plate. The mushroom shape of the illuminated emergency-stop pushbutton and its snap-in contact connection when actuated prevents blockage of functionality due to jammed object or textiles. The latched-in position of the pushbutton can be reset by rotation.

The compact emergency-stop pushbutton can also be combined with PCB solder terminal contact blocks (PCB) for PCB mounting or with quick-connect contact blocks (QC) for directly wired connection. The button has been designed for mounting holes with a diameter of 22.3 mm.

Pushbuttons, keyswitches or selector switches from the RAFIX 22 FS+ series can be combined on the same printed circuit board with RAFI short-travel keyswitches in various dimensions and with various tactile switching forces and actuating areas. In contrast, the QC contact blocks with quick-connect terminals make especially quick and economical assembly possible. The pre-fabrication of the cable assemblies with contact blocks also makes everything especially easy due to the tool-free assembly principle. The mounting depth of the control components is 27 mm with the QC version. The compact emergency-stop pushbutton reaches IP 65 protection class from the front. The associated contact blocks are available in designs with two normally-closed contacts as well as with one normally-closed contact and one normally-open contact.
