Suitable for All Climate Zones

Ergonomic Actuators

30.04.2018 A versatile range of actuators from R. Stahl facilitates the design of explosion-protected local control stations for systems and machines.


Facts for Decision Makers:

  • IP66 compliant
  • ergonomic design
  • fully functional from –60 to +70 °C


The flexible product range includes push, mushroom-head, key-operated mushroom, locking mushroom, double-push and illuminated pushbuttons. The option of equipping a single actuator with up to four contact elements offers distinct advantages in practice. Alongside buttons, the portfolio also includes rotary actuators, key-operated switches, and panel-mount LED indicator lamps. The actuators can be combined with a diverse range of label holders and locking devices. The durable actuators of the 8602/3 series ensure a IP66 degree of protection and are designed for global use in hazardous areas. They are especially suited for extreme climate conditions: depending on the design, they remain fully functional from –60 °C to +70 °C. All the actuators are extremely ergonomic, they can even be operated while wearing gloves. Due to the integrated coding, rotary and key-operated switches can be set to the “Latching/spring return” or “Key not detachable” functions without additional accessories. The new range of actuators can be combined individually with all control boxes. The different versions of the local control stations are available in stainless steel or glass fibre reinforced polyester resin. All the components and the enclosure correspond to the latest standards and can be used worldwide.
