The Allen-Bradley 800B 16mm push buttons feature LED pilot lights that can indicate if a motor is in operation and trigger-action emergency-stop (E-stop) devices that cease motion.
The new line is said to meet global standards, including UL, CSA, CE and CCC. The entire family is constructed of corrosion-resistant plastic materials that help to extend overall product life. For improved visibility and comfort, the 800B devices offer bright, consistent illumination with an ergonomic concave shape.
Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture users benefit from the low-voltage, gold-plated contact blocks and LEDs with leakage current shunt.
The new 800B product line takes many of the features of Allen-Bradley 22.5 and 30mm push button families and puts them in a 16mm size design.
