Good things can come in small packages, XA E-Stop Switches are just 19.5mm behind the panel!


Sunnyvale, CA, February 3, 2009 – IDEC XA (16mm) series of emergency stop switches, the safest in the world, are now available in a new compact unibody with only 19.5mm depth behind the panel. XA E-stops save you valuable space, while providing unparalleled safety. Available in 29mm and 40mm mushroom operators, these E-stops are easy-to-spot in red, yellow or gray.

16mm XA and 22mm XW E-stop switches are now available with engraved EMO markings. When used in combination with switch guards, these E-stops comply with SEMI S2 standards, while only being 27.9mm behind the panel (XA series) with up to four contacts.

XA E-stops offer up to four contacts with our unique “safe-break” technology. This revolutionary design uses the spring-pressure to assure that the NC contacts will open if the emergency switch is damaged or the contact blocks break off due to excessive force, while still maintaining a depth behind the panel that is less than half of a conventional E-Stop switch. Another great feature of the XA and XW E-stops, push-to-lock and pull- or turn-to-reset, eliminates any possible confusion for operators when resetting the switch. XA Unibody E-stops are available in 1NC and 2NC contact configurations, as well as solder terminals in standard size or #110 terminals with gold-plated crossbar contacts.

XA Emergency Stops are UL/c-UL, TUV and CE recognized, as well as IP65 and IP40 rated, and CCC certified (except Unibody style). XW E-stops are UL, c-UL listed, TUV recognized and EN compliant, as well as CCC certified.
