E-Stop illuminated base changes colour to indicate status
24 May 2012
Banner Engineering has introduced a 30mm illuminated emergency stop pushbutton, combining status indication and safety in one unit. Featuring Banner’s EZ-LIGHT logic, these E-Stops provide an illuminated yellow base when the button is armed and the machine is enabled to run or is running. When the button is pushed, the yellow illumination turns to a flashing red to indicate an emergency stop condition.
Users can easily reset only the pushed button or buttons, readying the device efficiently with minimal downtime. The yellow illumination can also turn to a steady red indication when a stop condition exists by applying an external signal via the M12 QD connector. To meet diverse application requirements, the E-Stops are available with two-colour yellow and red lighting, red lighting or a non-illuminated black base.
The IP65-rated E-Stops allow convenient installation with no assembly, individual wiring or additional enclosure required. For applications requiring a series of E-Stops, multiple buttons can be interfaced and series connected with CSS Series Hookup Cordsets. Flush (surface) mount models are also available with standard, illuminated, lockable and illuminated lockable pushbuttons.
The unit features a 'safe break' action to ensure the safety contacts will open if the contact block is separated from the actuator. The push-to-stop, twist-to-release or pull-to-release actuator and direct (positive) opening operation is compliant with ANSI B11.19, ANSI NFPA79, ISO 13850 and IEC/EN 60204-1 Emergency Stop requirements and meets worldwide safety standards with a red button and yellow background.
