A push button is a simple type of switch that controls an action in a machine or some type of process.
Most of the time, the buttons are plastic or metal. The shape of the push button may conform to fingers or hands for easy use, or they may simply be flat.
Push button switches typically have two key parts, an actuator and contacts. The actuator will go all the way through the switch and into a thin cylinder at the bottom. Inside is a movable contact and spring. When the actuator is pressed, it touches with the stationary contacts, causing the action to take place.
Push button switches are popular in a variety of different applications; you can find them in the home, the office and industrial applications. They can turn machines on and off, or cause the devices to perform a specific action.
In some cases, specifically for commercial and industrial usage, the buttons can connect through mechanical linkage, which means that pushing one button can actually cause another button to release.
The Siemens SIRIUS Act Push buttons are a modular system of push buttons and indicator lights for front plate and rear-mounted electrical modules.
Thanks to SIRICUS ACT with PROFINET, push buttons and indicator lights can be connected directly via PROFINET to the controller and HMI devices – including safety functions. Engineering and commissioning are simplified no end by the TIA Portal.
The SIRIUS ACT is available in four design lines 1) black plastic 2) plastic matte 3) shiny metal and 4) metal matte flat.
There are several options for communication and are suitable for use in extreme environments. They are resistant to chemicals and have a service life of 100’000 hours thanks to the use of LEDs.
