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

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
