What are Pushbuttons & Indicators?
Pushbuttons and Switches are electro-mechanical devices that allow an operator to interact with a system by manually opening or closing contacts in an electrical circuit. Along with indicator lights, these devices are essential to industrial systems as they can pass information to the operator or allow the operator to start, stop, or alter a process.

Where are Pushbuttons & Indicators Used?
Pushbuttons, Switches, and Indicators are utilized virtually anywhere an operator interfaces with a system. A few examples include:
  • Industrial Control Systems
  • Pump Stations
  • Conveyors
  • Lighting
  • Ventilation Systems

Who uses Pushbuttons & Indicators?
Pushbuttons are used across most industries to control many types of systems. Some of these industries include:
  • Material Handling
  • Food and Beverage
  • Power Generation
  • Water and Wastewater
  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

What Style of Pushbutton, Switch, or Indicator Do You Need?
Both form and function are important aspects of choosing your pushbuttons and indicators. A wide variety of interfacing devices are available ranging from simple flush pushbuttons to mushrooms or even switches. Available styles include:
  • Flush Pushbuttons
  • Extended Pushbuttons
  • Recessed Pushbuttons
  • Momentary Mushrooms
  • E-Stop Mushrooms
  • Selector Switches
  • Indicator Lights

What Environmental Protection Range Does the Application Require?
The environmental range of a pushbutton is one of the most important considerations in some applications. Having the right protection rating can mean the difference between meeting and not meeting certain codes and standards. We carry pushbuttons and indicators with the following protection ratings:
  • Type 4X, IP40, IP65, IP66

Note that not all pushbuttons, switches, and indicator lights are available in all environmental ranges.

What Size?
The size of a pushbutton or indicator refers to the size of the hole where the device is installed. Our pushbuttons and indicators are available in two sizes: 22mm and 30mm. These include switches and different pushbutton styles such as flush, recessed, and mushroom. Modular DIN switches and indicators in size DIN 43 880 are also available. These modular devices fit on DIN rail or inside compatible component enclosures.
