, the expert partner for innovative, intuitive and reliable Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), has extended the robust and attractive Series 82 with an overmolded option and M12 connector. The new version is available for selected illuminated pushbuttons within the Series 82 and offers fast mounting as well as complete front and rear IP67 protection.
It is common to expose actuators and indicators to extremely harsh operating conditions. For example, in the food & beverage industry, where alkaline cleaning agents and corrosion severely affect HMIs. In addition, external factors in the form of hard-to-remove dirt, fine dust, along with severe vibrations and blunt impacts commonly encountered in heavy duty and special vehicles applications also require HMIs to offer a very high level of resistance.
- Food and beverage industry
- Heavy duty & special vehicles
- Buses and coaches
- Marine applications
The overmolded version of the Series 82 is capable of meeting these strict requirements offering reliable enhanced protection. These attractively designed illuminated pushbuttons feature a housing made from SUS 316L stainless steel and a Tritan light guide resistant to cleaning agents. These design features provide protection against wear and ensure consistent clarity of both the dot and the ring illumination.
Advantages of the overmolded version
- Complete IP67 protection for illuminated pushbuttons
- Tritan light guide resistant to cleaning agents
- Housing made of SUS 316L stainless steel
- High resistance to vibration and impact
- M12 connector for fast and resilient mounting
- 24VDC illuminated versions available with red, green, white or blue LEDs
The switches utilize a robust M12 connector. This connection method saves customers time when it comes to mounting as well as enabling a highly resilient HMI connection. The rear of the device is also IP67-compliant thanks to the overmolding of the switch and connector, ensuring that the HMI has complete and reliable protection. The overmolded version also offers very high resistance to vibrations and impact.
