The multiple uses of push buttons in organisations
Designed for panel mounting, push button switches are typically used to stop and start operations. Often they are coloured red and green, with red used to stop systems and green to go. However, they are also available in other colours such as yellow and black. This makes it easier for your business to differentiate between the various functions you have allocated.
The design makes it easy to use, with some conforming to the shape of a fingertip so it can be depressed while others are flat so that they can be hit with the palm of the hand. This makes them ideal for manufacturing or food service industries, as the buttons can be programmed to cease all operations in case of emergency.
There are numerous push button switch types from snap-in and PCB mounting to panel mounting. At Under Control, we stock an extensive variety of panel mount push buttons. Available as singular buttons or as part of a set, you can get everything you need to keep operations running smoothly or to pause them with momentary push button switches.
Select the push button type you need
The type of push button you need will depend on its intended purpose. Emergency mushroom stop buttons are extremely symbolic and have become instantly recognisable, making them essential for any technical operations where an immediate stop button is needed. The durable plastic material means it can withstand high-pressure environments, as you can deactivate the device by rotating the button in case of a false stop.
Neon or illuminated push button switches are extremely popular, as they can catch the attention of those looking for them quickly. Our range of round latching push buttons in neon has the power symbol on them, making their purpose immediately clear.
