Mike is a pendant control station used for the control of industrial machines. This auxiliary control acts on the motor of the machine through a power interface, such as a contactor or a PLC. It is an industrial control station designed for heavy duty use.
Mike has an innovative design, where each graphic element is linked to a specific technical function. Its dimensions and shape are the result of careful analysis of the product ergonomic aspects, aimed at achieving a graphic style that blends in with modern industrial environments, making Mike extremely handy and user friendly.
Its compact dimensions and antislip grooves on the case make it easy to handle under any working conditions.
The innovative hanging system of Mike, with cables hidden inside the shell, enables quick, correct, ergonomic installation to prevent the danger of personal injury in everyday use.
Mike has been designed to facilitate wiring and maintenance:
the switches are installed in the base of the control station, together with the inlet of the cable, and are separated from the actuators, installed on the cover; this reduces time and costs for installation and maintenance down time.
The emergency stop mushroom pushbutton complies with EN 418 regulation and is equipped with positive opening NC switches.
Mike is available in configurations with 4 to 15 actuators, with 1NO or 1NC switches and LED lamp voltage 24/48 V AC/DC or 110/230 V AC.
The range includes actuators in various colours: one or two speed buttons, selector switches and key-operated switches in various actuation configurations, pilot lights, pulsed or latched mushroom pushbuttons with rotation or key-operated release. One-speed pushbuttons and selector switches are available in illuminated version in a range of colours.
Mike comes with standard sheet of labels (symbols and lettering) to be applied to the upper cover near the actuators, according to needs of every customer. Upon request Mike can be supplied with pushbuttons bearing two-colour moulded symbols, making the symbols permanent.
A specific protection is available for the actuators installed on the bottom of the control station.
The 22,5 mm rubber pushbuttons ensure protection against dust penetration, to prevent them from becoming stuck when the control station is used in particularly harsh conditions. All the materials and components used are weather resistant and guarantee protection of the unit against the penetration of water and dust (IP66).
