Emergency stop button in slimline housing (M12 8-pin)

The EDI emergency stop buttons have a modular design.

Select the head, contact and if desired the corresponding housing or simply immediately select the EDI slimline variant in a slimline housing. The special feature of the EDI buttons is the optionally available self-monitoring contact.

To help maintain safety, the switching elements in the emergency stop buttons/emergency off buttons are fitted with a safety contact. This constantly monitors the proper connection between the emergency stop button/emergency off button and the contact element. Even redundant, secure emergency off chains are ineffective if the contact is not perfectly connected to the emergency off actuator. If the emergency stop button/emergency off button becomes disconnected from the contact element due to negligent installation or mechanical damage, the safety contact trips immediately and the machine is shut down. The machine can only be placed into operation again when the fault has been rectified.
