All the frequently asked questions are discussed in detail for the complete understanding of the product, like its usage, types, how it works and safety precautions to use and install. It will also help you to buy and install it by yourself.
1. What is an outdoor push button switch?
Outdoor push button switch is a kind of electric switch which is used to control any device or machine using the pre-installed electric circuit.
Some models of outdoor push button has an internal spring mechanism which helps the button to go back to its actual position.
And some push button switches will latch to on or off position after every press.
The outdoor push button switch is installed in an open area like outside the house, shop, or any commercial or residential building for any specific purpose.
Some dc push button switch can be used at construction sites, poles, roads, trains, cruise ships, or other public places.
The flat push button can be made with different kinds of materials and in different shapes as per its usage and customer requirements.
2. What is the main purpose of the outdoor push button switch?
The outdoor push button switch has numerous purposes and uses at a domestic and commercial level, even in the industry.
AC push button switch is usually used as a gate opener (at both domestic and commercial places), to operate machines in industries, to start fire alarms, to connect through mechanical linkage i.e. control other electric circuits and switches, etc.
In some cases, the low voltage push button switch is used to perform any specific commands or tasks to reduce the chances of mistakes or any misunderstanding.
3. How many types of outdoor push button switch are there?
There are different types of outdoor push button switch which are described below:
Normally Open Push Button Switch
Normally Closed Push Button Switch
Tactile Push Button Switch
Emergency Push Button Switch
Normally Open Push Button Switch– normally-open (NO) push button means its circuit is not connected in its default condition. It works only if we press the button.
Normally Closed Push Button Switch – normally-closed (NC) push button means its circuit is active in its default position. It stops electric flow when we push the button.
Tactile Push Button Switch – these are NO push button switch in small size, used to close the circuit.
Emergency Push Button Switch – the emergency push button switch is used to stop the whole system in an emergency. The main line is passed through an emergency push button which helps to break the whole electric circuit.
4. Is the outdoor push button switch anti-vandal?
Yes, the outdoor push button switch can be anti-vandal.
As the outdoor push button switch is exposed for harsh use, that’s why its frame is manufactured with hard material like stainless steel to use in extreme and harsh weather conditions and switch with the actuator. This dc momentary switch is fixed inside the panel with jam nut for safety and to maintain a smooth exterior.
5. Are piezo switch and capacitive switch used for outdoor?
Piezo switch could be used as outdoor push button switch reaching IP68 & IP69K, capacitive switch is better to be used indoor.
These switches are very weather resistant. However, there is some difference between these switches.
Piezo switch has two layers; the outer layer usually manufactured with metallic substance and the inner layer with ceramic material.
It generates an electric charge with the force of soft-touch and gives a signal to the system that push in button has been pressed.
This switch is waterproof because it is covered with a metallic outer layer.
While capacitive works with the human body capacitance. When the human body touches it, the switch uses the natural electrical charge of the body and gives a signal to the circuit that the button has been pushed.
This switch is more sensitive and not recommended for outdoor use.
Capacitive outdoor push button switch
6. What is the difference between an outdoor push button switch and an indoor push button switch?
The indoor push button is installed inside the room or placed on the device and normally used to control home appliances, lights, elevators, etc.
However, the ip68 switch is installed outside the home, office building or industrial area, or any public place.
It is directly affected by weather changes like sunshine and rain etc.
7. How does the outdoor push button switch work?
There are three parts of an outdoor push to exit button, the grooves, actuator, and stationary contacts.
The actuator is placed inside a thin cylinder on the switch.
And there is a spring and latch inside the cylinder.
Outdoor push button switch
When the push button is pressed, the inside object connects with the stationary contacts.
As a result, the circuit is complete and it starts working. And we press the button again, it comes back to normal position and circuit stops working.
