RAFI: Lumotast 16


March 24, 2021

Space for pushbuttons and switches is limited on many devices – especially when they must be both handy and user-friendly. This has previously led to compromises in this area – in terms of the design or quality. That’s why RAFI developed the LUMOTAST 16.

The new single pushbutton series, consisting of a pushbutton and emergency stop, is designed primarily for use in applications such as equipment manufacturing and hand-held terminals. This space-saving component family is equally impressive at the front and at the rear.


The built-in tactile switches offer crisp feedback. Special, first-class switching behavior is achieved, combined with full area illumination. RAFI’s illuminated pushbuttons can be labeled to suit any application by the manufacturer or customer.


The LUMOTAST 16 emergency stop variant reliably brings machines and equipment to a standstill. With its attractive design, the LUMOTAST 16 is a real eye-catcher.

For hand-held devices, the trend is towards wireless solutions with a radio connection to the machine. The emergency stop buttons used here must offer special functions, such as our special “active/inactive” emergency stop variant – an innovation with a signaling effect. Precisely matched to the applicable safety standards, this special emergency stop not only increases safety, but also convenience. RAFI’s “active/inactive” variant only switches if the device is connected to the machine. To avoid confusion, the translucent special variant lights up red when active. The hard-wired emergency stop on the machine or system is not affected by this.
