Flush-mount pushbuttons for modern control panel design
May 2018, Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays


RS Components has announced availability of more than 150 new lines of flush-mount pushbuttons from the Harmony XB5F range from Schneider Electric. Designed for control panels and targeting panel builders, machine builders and maintenance engineers, the new plastic range features a modernised design with no compromise on performance.

Aimed at a wide selection of industrial applications including use in the chemical industry, food and beverage production, packaging industry, automotive industry and building automation, Schneider Electric has focused on the robustness of the new XB5F range. The range has particularly been designed to meet the performance requirements of machines and electrical control panels in harsh environments and is compliant to IEC and UL international standards. Featuring IP ratings of IP66, IP67, IP69 and IP69K, and extended temperature ranges from -40 to +70°C, the range has also seen improved mechanical endurance and shock resistance characteristics.

As well as offering increased performance across the Harmony range, the latest devices also include an evolution in aesthetics with a redesign that offers a more modern look and feel. The XB5F range is available in a plastic body version and comes in a vibrant colour palette, including new blue and green caps for non-illuminated functions, to deliver a highly contemporary appearance to machine control interfaces.

In addition, Schneider Electric has also introduced a new series of illuminated buzzers, which target deployment in operator alarm systems and have been designed for mounting on a control panel in a standard 22 mm panel cut out. The new IP69-rated XB5K range of buzzers is available in illuminated and non-illuminated options and in red or amber colours.
