New switches for the visially impaired

EAO has introduced a new black-and-white double On/Off switch to the Series 44 range of industrial controls. This product features a large, illuminated central lens to indicate the status of equipment. It can be supplied with or without the engraved 'I and 0' symbols, and with either a matt grey or chromium-plated case. It is intended for use wherever there is an on/off function, particularly within the machinery and process control sectors, where manufacturers should replace the red/green versions to comply with new regulations for visually-impaired users.

These regulations govern the use of equipment by those who may find it difficult to distinguish between red and green on/off positions.This IP65-rated product is offered with a self-cleaning, slow make switching element and lamp block; illumination is provided by either LEDs or Ba9 lamps. EAO also offers a similar switch in a red/green combination.
