An emergency stop button is also called an E-stop button. However, it is used when there is need for an immediate action or when a machine or piece of equipment needs to be stopped as fast as possible. It is not uncommon to see a heavy machine breakdown or start to malfunction. In a time like that, there should be a way to halt the operation of the machine instantly and that is what an E-stop button does. The design of an E-button is such that it fits with the equipment on which it is used so that it looks like they were produced together. E-buttons are installed to reduce the risk of accidents.
