The pushbuttons are available in flush, extended and mushroom styles. Pushbutton colors include black, green, red, blue, white and yellow. These pushbuttons and all the selector switches contain up to three sealed contact blocks, each rated up to 10A, and are available in normally open or normally closed configurations.

Emergency stop pushbuttons feature push-to-lock and turn-to-reset operation, and are supplied with a yellow body and a standard red mushroom head. Multiple contact configurations are available.
