The E22 product line includes pushbuttons, selectors, and indicators, which feature a standard mechanical life of 5 million cycles. A mounting adapter accepts all contact blocks and light units, and no tools are needed to mount contact blocks to the adaptor, or to mount the adapter to the operator. Terminals are backed out and wire ready, and allow operators to mount through the front of the panel without spacers, washers, or screws. The pushbuttons provide switching capability even in low voltage/low current applications and fine dust or corrosive environments.
