Control stations and control station enclosures are control devices that provide housing for certain industrial types of push buttons, with some fitting multiple buttons. An essential part of a device control system, they are usually made of a tough material such as polycarbonate or stainless steel.
Push button control stations tend to be restricted to use in industrial settings and provide a rugged casing for the buttons, which offers protection from rigorous use and in potentially hazardous environments. These control devices can also range from buttons to switches, and are carefully arranged to be a part of an industrial control system to start and stop the electrical supply of a given circuit.
In general, control devices are designed for machine control systems, and give the users maximum flexibility so that a wide range of applications can be fulfilled. They are all constructed to perform in the most demanding industrial environments such as in industrial control systems, making them great air control devices and fluid control devices.
Push button control stations vary depending on what the push buttons are being used for. This often determines the number and type of buttons needed. For example, two push buttons to start and stop a piece of machinery might be housed in a single push button control station, with a green button for go and a red one for stop. Some push button control stations are designed to prevent accidental operation of the button, with a twisting motion or a separate key needed to complete the function.
Safety two hand control switches are used to safeguard the hands of an operator in industrial situations where machine operation may be hazardous. In order to operate the machine, both hands must be used. This means machinery will not start until both hands are confirmed to be in a safe position.
