IDEC XA (16mm) series of emergency stop switches are now available in a new compact unibody with only 19.5mm depth behind the panel, saving valuable space, while providing unparalleled safety. Available in 29mm and 40mm mushroom operators, these E-stops are easy-to-spot in either red, yellow or gray.
16mm XA and 22mm XW E-stop switches are now available with engraved EMO markings. When used in combination with switch guards, these E-stops comply with SEMI S2 standards, while only being 27.9mm behind the panel (XA series) with up to four contacts.
In today’s automated world, more customers are requiring E-Stop switches with at least three contacts. (two of the contacts trip the power and the third contact is used to alert a safety-monitoring relay.) XA E-stops offer up to four “safe-break” contacts with a depth behind the panel that is less than half of a conventional E-Stop switch.
IDEC’s E-Stop switches are secured from the rear of the control panel, so the buttons cannot be removed from the front. Another feature of the XA and XW E-stops, push-to-lock and pull- or turn-to-reset, eliminates any possible confusion for operators when resetting the switch. XA Unibody E-stops are available in 1NC and 2NC contact configurations are available, as are solder terminals in standard size or #110 terminals with gold-plated crossbar contacts.
The XA and XW (with removable contact blocks) series incorporate an innovative “safe break action” concept. This unique, revolutionary design uses the spring-pressure to assure that the NC contacts will open if the emergency switch is damaged or the contact blocks break off due to excessive force.
XA Emergency Stops are UL/c-UL, TUV and CE recognized, as well as IP65 and IP40 rated, and CCC certified (except Unibody style). XW E-stops are UL, c-UL listed, TUV recognized and EN compliant, as well as CCC certified. In addition, an optional accessory is available to customers, which when mounted makes the contacts fingersafe.
