Digi-Key customers can now access digital product detector tool

Digi-Key has announced that it has expanded its tool offerings by signing a global partnership with EAO to provide its customers with a new Digital Product Selector (DPS) tool for emergency stop switches.

EAO’s Digital Product Selector is an interactive and intuitive virtual configuration tool, that enables engineers and designers to configure products online to their specific needs.

The tool has been designed to offer an engaging user experience for customers to select emergency stop switches and configure them to their needs based on 3D photo realistic selections, as well as parametric input. Customers can view 360-degree images, mounting depths, dimensional representations, illumination previews, and panel mounted views. Users can also download files such as data sheets designed for specific configuration, CAD drawings, launch installation videos and certifications.

The tool gives customers access to over 130 parts, which can be configured in more than 2,000 different combinations. Once a customer has selected a configured emergency stop switch to meet their specific needs, they may add it to their cart and purchase it through Digi-Key’s website.

“We are pleased to introduce this new tool to our customers,” said David Stein, vice president, global supplier management at Digi-Key. “Emergency stop switches are a critical component of design engineering, and this tool has a variety of industry applications, from industrial automation to medical equipment and electric vehicle charging stations. We’re proud to support these important industries with critical resources and a simplified shopping experience.”

The DPS tool means that from switch function to IP ratings and unlocking features, customers will be able to quickly and intuitively select their switch and accessories, add them to their Digi-Key cart and checkout.

The tool supports a variety of industries, including machinery and industrial automation, food and beverage, packaging systems, process automation, lifting and moving, specialty vehicles, transportation, medical equipment, industrial X-ray machines, compressors, printing equipment, EV charging stations and more.
