Switches • Push Button Switches

Push Button Switches are used commonly as emergency stop buttons and are built to withstand and resist damage from dirt, dust, water and other environmental hazards.

A type of biased switch, the simply-designed pushbutton switch is adaptable to a host of applications including industrial-related processes. Industrial pushbutton types – including those used as emergency stop buttons - lend themselves to hard use, as they are sealed and able to resist dirt, dust, water, and a variety of other materials found in manufacturing facilities. The most common type of pushbutton is a normally-open switch, which makes contact when the button is pressed and breaks when the button is released. A normally-closed switch breaks contact when the button is pressed and makes contact when it is released.
