Moeller RMQ Titan Range Pilot Devices & Pushbuttons - Innovative Control Gear Technology
The Moeller RMQ Series Pilot Devices provide convenience, security and ease of installation. Approved for the toughest of environments, all operators come standard with safety rated contacts and illuminated indicators equipped with long life LED’s.
Moeller pushbutton devices combine rugged performance with aesthetic appeal. The Moeller RMQ Titan range offer a wide selection of operator styles designed with common back of panel components to reduce inventory levels.
Several unique features are combined to make Moeller pushbuttons and pilot devices an ideal choice for users who require a machine interface at an economical price. Moeller Pushbuttons can be mounted in a variety of methods, including but not limited to DIN Rail mounting & enclosure mounting.
All Moeller RMQ Titan front elements come with protection to at least IP67, providing virtually unlimited scope for applications. Moeller Pushbutton actuators and indicator lights offer protection to IP69K. Pushbuttons can therefore be cleaned safely with high pressure and steam cleaners (a central benefit for applications where cleanliness and hygiene are important factors).
Two and four operator pushbuttons are available which can save on valuable space on panels. A four position joystick and potentiometer offer application flexibility, while direct-wire pilot light and audible alarm module eliminates the need for purchase and stocking of contact blocks and mounting latches.
Many Moeller Titan actuators can be fitted to LS Limit Switch bodies which serve as a compact enclosure with two built in contacts. The Moeller range mounts into a standard 22mm notched hole, providing assurance against device rotation during installation and long term use.
An anti rotation tab and central nut mounting on each operator allow easy installation. Once installed all back of panel component can be modified while leaving the operator in place. Moeller Titan contact blocks provide secure connections with screw terminals for standard applications and cage clamps for high vibration environments.
Most of the Moeller RMQ-Titan standard pushbuttons and contact blocks have a mechanical lifespan exceeding five million operations, ensuring a long productive lifespan. (All contact blocks carry Pilot Duty Rating of A600/ P300 (10A 600VAC and 1A 250VDC)
Moeller PushbuttonMoeller pushbuttons have the ability to convert functionalities. Maintained pushbuttons can easily be converted to momentary at the flick of a button. Selector switches can be converted from momentary to maintained, with the removal of an insert.
Key removal position of a keyed selector switch can be modified in the field with simple coding Adaptor. Flexibility adds a tremendous advantage over dedicated function devices from other manufacturers.
Moeller RMQ Titan Control Circuit Devices
Button plates, lenses, and legend plates of the RMQ Titan range of control circuit devices can be provided with laser inscriptions as required. Information is burnt into the surface providing maximum wear resistance and durability, to ensure a uniform appearance.
- Ergonomic design through actuator elements shaped to the curve of the fingertip
- Optimum illumination efficiency through specially designed lenses in the indicator lights
- The use of LEDs ensure low current consumption, less heat, vibration resistance, and a long lifespan – 100,000 hours (11.5 years)
- Fast connection to AS-i possible at any time
- Mounting in 22.3 mm grid dimensions
- Up to 6 contact elements can be clipped on in 2 levels
- Simple stay-put or spring-return function with all stay-put pushbutton actuators
- Degree of protection IP 66 allows use in rugged industrial environments
- Complies with all international standards and regulations such as IEC/EN 60 947 as well as test mark requirements and directives such as UL and CE
High environmental ratings
All front elements of Moeller buttons have a minimum of IP66 environmental rating, protecting against heavy seas, sprayed water, oil and dirt.
Standard operators have more stringent IP67 and IP69K rating, protecting from submersion and high pressure + high temperature wash down environments found in food processing applications. Most actuators can be ordered with ATEX approval labels for use in dangerous explosive dust areas like mills, metal grinding, woodworking, cement works and aluminium industries + pharmaceutical industries.
Moeller Operation Security
Moeller Keyed operators offer 8000 different lock mechanism and four separate levels of supervisory access privileges. While individual operator control is most common, 2nd level and general master key schemes are available for ultimate operational control.
The Moeller Titan range includes an interface for information. Panel mounted USB and Rj45 connections allow easy communications to control for analysis and interaction.
Moeller FAK Foot & Palm Switches
Moeller FAK SwitchesAn additional range for the Moeller RMQ titan series includes FAK foot and palm switches.
Moeller FAK Foot & Palm Switches are ideal for application requiring repetitive or non-traditional methods of machine control (momentary only). Switches can be actuated with the flat of the hand or closed fist wearing gloves or with the elbow or foot.
High degree of shock resistance and protection to IP69 K makes the FAK an ideal device for rugged applications. Moeller FAK foot and palm switches are available in an Emergency Stop configuration with special yellow and black base maintained operation.
