Global Compact Pushbuttons & Pilot Devices
Push forward toward modern design
C22 compact pushbuttons share the same sleek design as our M22 modular pushbuttons but are designed with “monoblock” construction. Contact blocks are built in to each device without the need to purchase or assemble separate back-of-panel components.

The convenient, all-in-one C22 with pigtail integrates the required cable, connector and housing in one single device. The high degrees of protection in the front (up to IP69K) and at the back (IP65) of these devices make the perfect choice for applications in which oil-tight protection from dirt or liquids is required.

Eaton’s modern all-in-one C30 compact 30 mm pilot devices with pigtail integrate the required cable, connector and housing in one single device.
