EAO produces a range of industrial switches protected by stainless steel for harsh environments. From the Series 04 and 14 ranges, customers can create illuminated pushbuttons, indicators and selector switches with stainless steel lenses, protective front rings and bezels. With ratings up to IP67 and high operating-temperature ranges, these switches are suitable for operating in very wet or dusty conditions. EAO products are designed from the inside out for durability, strength and functionality, making them suitable for machinery control panels that must resist impact, air pollution and chemical washing. The switches can be flush-mounted for a flat-finished interface better resistant to vandalism or harsh treatment. EAO offers a choice of self-cleaning, snap-action switching elements with gold-plated silver contacts. Silver/palladium contacts can be specified for particularly aggressive environments. EAO products can be illuminated with LEDs that increase resistance to vibration, while reducing current consumption and heat dissipation. EAO can also laser engrave products with markings that will not wear off or corrode.
