IP 69K-rated control units suited to hygienic applications

Singular Controls is pleased to introduce a family of panel-mounted pushbuttons, E-stops, selector switches, potentiometers, and flat and protruding LED-based indicator lights.

The 22.5-mm Hygeia Series “N” control units have been designed expressly to meet the emerging hygienic standards of the food processing, pharmaceutical and medical industries. Each meets the stringent requirements of EN 1672-2:2004 and ISO 14159 for cleaning and preventing the risk of accumulation of dirt and bacteria.

The “N” series features special easy-to-clean surface geometries, and a special sealing design that protect the gaps between fixed and moving parts against the ingress of contamination. All meet IP 67 submersibility and IP 69K sealing requirements for up to 80° C high pressure hot water/steam jet cleaning (according to DIN 40050 Part 9).
