Schneider Electric Expands its Harmony Range with New Pilot Light & Emergency Stop Switch Offerings

Schneider Pilot Light

Global energy management specialist, Schneider Electric, has expanded its Harmony range with a new generation 16mm pilot light and emergency stop button.

The XB6E monolithic 16mm and 22mm pushbuttons provide a true, bright coloured light, allowing pilot lights to be seen clearly, even in bright ambient conditions. They are particularly effective with warning lights, avoiding potential danger where the light can’t be seen clearly. The products are suitable for a wide range of applications, including small machines and control panels, local and remote panels, control boards within buildings or surveillance rooms, transport and small electronic equipment and medical instrumentation.

In addition to this, Schneider Electric’s new 22mm ‘trigger action’ emergency stop has been designed to replace all non-trigger action devices by the end of the year, in line with relevant legislation.

Darryl Wells-Pope, product marketing manager for Schneider Electric, comments: “As IEC and ISO standards are now the driving force for electrical standards globally, key standards such as IEC 60947-5-5, which relates to emergency stop devices and ISO 13850 are now more rigidly enforced than ever before.

“As a leader in the market for industrial pushbuttons, Schneider Electric aims to help specifiers to easily choose the correct devices to comply with the relevant standards.

“The IEC 60204 currently defines two functions, namely Emergency Stop, which is focused on mechanical risks and emergency switching off, which is focused on other risks. For our customers, it’s not always clear which type of product to choose to meet each of these functions. As our trigger action emergency stop button complies with both, the risk of choosing the wrong product is eliminated.”
