RS Components has added the Eaton RMQ Small E-Stop to its emergency pushbutton portfolio. This compact device is approximately 30% smaller than standard emergency stop buttons and is created to provide improved levels of safety in the smallest possible footprint. Providing 360-degree visibility and with a diameter of only 30mm, the button integrates seamlessly into most automation and machine building applications. Its compact size provides machine builders and operations engineers an emergency stop option that is at home in any automation environment, whether mounted horizontally on a flat control panel or vertically on a machine enclosure.


Although it is small in size, the button is big on safety. As well as a front-facing LED status indicator, this emergency stop button features an innovative illuminated ring design around its circumference. This delivers full 360-degree visibility when the device is activated, assuring that its status can be seen clearly from all sides as well as from the front. An optional RGB LED element provides system designers and operations engineers with a selection of seven colours, which can be chosen to show machine status or to assure the emergency light is distinct from other visual indicators in the area.


The button is simple to integrate due to its modular, plug-and-play design. It is compatible with flat rear contacts but can be supplied with self-monitoring contacts as an option. For further flexibility, specifiers can choose from either a 22mm or 30mm diameter version and models which are rated to IP65K and IP69K. There is also a pick of a pull-to-reset or turn-to-reset release mechanism.
