New series of emergency stop switches for multiple market applications

Foremost Electronics has introduced nine new emergency stop switches from the IDEC e-stop series. The new products comprise the IDEC XA, X6, XN1E/5E, XN4E, EU2B, FB1W, XW, HW and YW product ranges.

Emergency stop switches are needed in virtually all markets, from industrial and process control, consumer, to medical applications, agriculture and transportation. IDEC’s strength lies in its capability to develop products that meet the demands of each different market with the latest innovations that exceed industry standards and certifications.

The nine new series of emergency stop switches provide an exceptional range and include a wide variety of options. The range comprises three plunger diameters (30mm, 40mm and 60mm), three plunger colours (yellow, red and grey), the availability of illuminated versions, 16mm, 22mm and 30mm panel cut-outs, several methods of connection, four types of reset functions: twist, pull, both (when needed) or key, reduced size and offer greater flexibility in the number of contacts, from one to four with normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) variants.

Alan Vincent, sales director of Foremost, comments: “Emergency stop switches are one of the most important components and user controls in almost every piece of equipment used where operators or patients are present. They have to be easy to locate in all conditions and simple and failsafe to use. We are very pleased to be able to offer the market leading IDEC e-stop series which fits in well with our other HMI product ranges.”
