Eaton is expanding its pushbutton offering with its C22 compact pilot devices, an all-in-one design that includes the operator and contact blocks in one housing to provide a broad selection of operators, functionality and features. The C22 product line features monoblock construction with built-in contacts and is engineered for easy push-through-and-tighten installation. Although the 22-millimeter design is compact, it offers the same pressable area as 30 mm pushbuttons.
With an IP67 rating on most front elements, the C22 devices are engineered for harsh industrial environments. The line includes Light Emitting Diode (LED) illuminated pushbuttons and pilot lights, twist-to-release emergency stops, selector switches and both flat and extended nonilluminated pushbuttons. Standard C22 pushbuttons have a mechanical lifespan of five million operations and can operate in temperatures between -25 and 70 degrees Celsius.
