Stainless steel IP69K push button stations

The food and beverage industries can be challenging for even the most robust push buttons stations where high-pressure and caustic wash-downs can cause downtime. Responding to this challenge, Routeco introduces IP69K rated push button station solutions designed to:

  • Minimise production loss due to cleaning procedures
  • Minimise frequent replacement due to corrosion
  • Minimise bacteria growth potential from crevices
  • Provide UL Certified products for industrial panels

The Rockwell Automation 22.5mm push buttons represent an innovative rethinking of push button technology and its industrial applications. They use a potted piezoelectric circuit in an SAE grade 316 stainless-steel body and achieve an IP69K rating. The piezoelectric circuit detects pressure on the surface of the button to provide a momentary actuation signal with no moving parts. A smooth, crevice-free button surface is the result.

800K buttons are available in illuminated and non-illuminated versions. The illuminated buttons use a translucent light pipe to bring the red, green or white LED illumination to a ring on the crevice-free operating surface. Red illuminated buttons have a single normally-closed circuit while all other models are provided with a single normally-open circuit. The momentary contacts can be directly connected to a programmable controller or with an appropriate interposing relay.

Push Button Station Features and Benefits:

IP69K Rating

  • Protected against close-range high pressure, high temperature caustic wash
  • Ideal for food, beverage, pharmaceutical and similar application environments

316 Stainless-steel Push Buttons

  • Corrosion resistant to caustic wash-down solutions

Smooth, Crevice-free Enclosure and Push Button Surfaces

  • Easier to clean 
  • Minimizes areas in which contaminates can potentially be lodged 

No Moving Parts

  • By using piezoelectric technology, moving seals and crevices can be eliminated from the push buttons, avoiding potential sources for failure

Potted Circuits

  • Helps prevent fluids from corroding operator components
  • Provides an additional barrier of protection

Custom Laser Push Button Engraving

  • Avoids potentially contaminate trapping legend plates
  • Provides flexibility to address a wide range of applications
