Cabinet U-handles GN 422 come with one or two push buttons. Each button has a changeover switch and integrated LED ring lighting.

When the button is pressed, an electrical control impulse to switch off a machine, for example, can be triggered based on the wiring of the contacts (NC or NO).

Independent whether or not the button is actuated, the integrated LED ring lighting shines either red or green depending on the polarity of connections 1 and 2 of the LED.

The cabinet U-handle is functional and highly compact and can be used for any application due to its universal design.
