Disassemble Button

Pull Tab to Left Position

Remove the button from the screw terminals by gently pulling on the yellow tab. If facing the button (as pictured) pull the tab towards you and then to the left to disengage the two parts.

Attach Button

Remove Nut

Unscrew the nut attached to the base of the button. This nut will be used to secure the button to the enclosure.

Insert Button into Enclosure

Line up the notch in the enclosure with the break in the threads, placing the Emergency Stop ring between the button and enclosure. This break in the threads should be on the side of the button marked “Top”. The “Top” side of the button will correspond with the “Top” side of the screw terminals when reassembling.

Secure Button with Nut

Screw on the nut to secure the button to the enclosure. If you’re having problems tightening the nut try using the button itself, making sure to keep the break in the threads aligned.

MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROWS ON THE BUTTON WHEN DISENGAGING THE E-STOP. YOU CAN LOOSEN THE NUT SECURING THE BUTTON TO THE ENCLOSURE IF TURNED THE WRONG DIRECTION. IF THIS CONTINUES TO BE AN ISSUE TRY REMOVING THE EMERGENCY STOP RING, WHICH ALLOWS DIRECT CONTACT BETWEEN THE GASKET ON THE BUTTON AND THE ENCLOSURE.

Attach Cable Strain Relief

Remove Nut and Attach to Enclosure

Pop off the plastic cover from the enclosure and remove the bottom nut from the cable strain relief piece. Place the nut inside of the enclosure and hold it stationary while you screw in the cable strain relief piece from the outside of the enclosure.

Wire It Up

Wire Power Cable to Screw Terminals

MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS UNPLUGGED WHEN WIRING!

Cut and strip the power cable to your setup. Feed the two pieces of cable through the cable strain relief piece and attach the stripped ends of the power cable (pictured in red) to each side of the NC (purple) screw terminal. Tighten the phillips head screws on the screw terminals to hold the power cable in place. For a more solid connection, you can use insulated ferrules and a ferrule crimper tool. The remaining cut wire ends can be soldered back together and cleaned up with heat shrink tubing. Solder sleeves can also be used to clean up the remaining wire ends.

Attach Wired Screw Terminals to the Button

Line up the “Top” marking on the screw terminals with the “Top” marking on the button.

Move the tab from the “left” position…

…to the “right” position to secure the screw terminals in place.

MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROWS ON THE BUTTON WHEN DISENGAGING THE E-STOP. YOU CAN LOOSEN THE NUT SECURING THE BUTTON TO THE ENCLOSURE IF TURNED THE WRONG DIRECTION. IF THIS CONTINUES TO BE AN ISSUE TRY REMOVING THE EMERGENCY STOP RING, WHICH ALLOWS DIRECT CONTACT BETWEEN THE GASKET ON THE BUTTON AND THE ENCLOSURE.
