Visual pushbutton configurator
Newark element14 and Schneider Electric have collaborated to create a visual pushbutton configurator that will give engineers access to Schneider's pushbuttons, lights, and switch assemblies.
Newark element14 launched their visual product configurator, which is designed to help engineers more easily find and purchase the complete line of Schneider Electric 22mm pushbuttons, pilot lights and selector switch assemblies, including contact blocks and legend plate accessories.
Engineers can now visually select the right operator type from the configurator’s guide, or upload their own parts list. In either case, the tool will then display all associated parts of the assembly, which can be sent directly to a shopping cart or saved as a PDF file. This collaborative configuration is designed to help engineers streamline their operations and save time.
