Extra large actuation area with dual illuminating rings to show visual indication of operational state is unique to industry also combining integrated finding tone/alert and illuminated symbols within one unit. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.Representing the latest in technology within the Human Machine Interface (HMI) market, the Series 57 is the first pushbutton to combine optical, tactile and acoustic features in one ground-breaking product. Product Manager, Marco Bighi, says, "Our new Series 57 should be the first choice for any operator to fully comply with EN 14752. EAO has a reputation for high-quality, innovative products, and now Series 57 will set a new standard." 

 

The modern design features a user friendly, extra-large operating area of 74 mm, which includes two unique, independently-illuminated feedback rings. The raised symbols conform to TSI PRM (Technical Specification for Interoperability for Passenger with Reduced Mobility) and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines) and will never wear or fade. Options include illuminated symbols and an integrated "finding tone" to help visually-impaired users.  Offering outstanding durability, the Series 57 is constructed using contemporary materials and will continue working through extreme temperatures from 40 C to +85 C.

 

The front is protected to IP69K against liquid and dirt ingress, and will resist chemical wash-downs often found within these application environments. To save both time and money, EAO has designed a new and efficient final-mounting system. This pushbutton is ideal for any application where visual indication, ease of actuation, and extreme durability are important requirements. Industries including access control, transportation, machinery, public interaction, and lifting and moving all rely on the features and characteristics of this product. EAO's Series 57 product line performs without doubt throughout the rigors, abuse, and harshness of these HMI applications.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
