    It's called an e-stop button if you search e-stop button you will find plenty of options for purchase. I believe it is also called a mushroom cap button that should get you some results also. Cutler-Hammer is the brand I have used.

    Actually Grainger has about a zillion (or maybe 100) different mushroom buttons and I am sure that McMaster-Carr has them too. A little searching will turn up enough selection to make your head spin.

    It's true - the Colortran Encore go button is massive and loud.

    I would be really impressed if it was set up to run a show.

    How come light boards don't have keyed switches anymore?

    I'm jealous. The C'tran Innovator 600 my school uses just has a regular old GO button, not much different than any oher buttons on the board. :((Personally, I don't like the board very much.)

    So...heres a question...

    When wiring an emergency stop button, how (or what device) do you have to use in order to have it trip a secondary circuit?

    For example...in wave pools, they have e stop buttons around the pool. If one is pressed (turning the waves off), you can pull the button back out, but the waves don't turn back on when its pulled out, you have to go turn a key in order to get them to start again. How do you wire this?

    Easiest way i found to do it is to use a latching relay (just search and see the options) It will maintain its status without coil power until it is manually reset. I don't know what you're doing with this so the options are unlimited. You can build one also out of a standard DPDT relay, but I don't think I can tell you how to on this forum . . . I don't even know if I can tell you it is possible to make one

    My curiosity may kill me one day, but what are you going to do with this switch?
