Larson Electronics introduces stainless button switch

Industrial lighting leader, Larson Electronics LLC, 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-1XPBMS-1XPB10 from Larson Electronics is an explosion proof double push button switch rated at 10 amps and operates on 600V AC @ 60 Hz with a choice of ½ inch or hub sizes for easy connection. This double push button includes a momentary switch and an estop, allowing operators to temporarily activate machines or other devices and stays active only when actuated, making it safe to use in explosive environments. This explosive proof double push button features two NO and two NC contact configurations.

This explosion proof double push button switch features sturdy and durable construction that will withstand the wear and tear of harsh industrial environments. The device itself 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 momentary push button switch is built with malleable iron and the switch cover is made of cast copper free aluminum alloy.
