Challenge

Placing the emergency stop button directly adjacent to the optical touch button (OTB) allows for more productivity and a better work flow for industrial automation processes. By having a streamlined operator workstation with easy-to-use, easy-to-mount and highly visible safety products, productivity can be maximized, even if an emergency occurs.

Solution

With the all-in-one unit, the emergency stop pushbutton combined with an OTB provides a simplified operator station for manufacturing lines that does not require wiring or additional enclosures.

Banner’s 30 mm mount E-Stop buttons work well in this type of application. Their illuminated base turns from yellow to flashing red when actuated, making them compliant with emergency stop requirements. The proximity of the emergency stop button to the OTB means workers can quickly and easily actuate emergency stop measures, while their flashing light clearly indicates an emergency.

The 30 mm mount illuminated E-stop button has a unique 360 degree round housing, with a red button and yellow background, meeting worldwide safety standards. Models are also available in a non-lit, solid black base.
