If you have ever mounted manually a panel or if you are regularly doing some handicraft at home, you do know that creating a square cut-out with a jigsaw is usually more time consuming than opening a round hole with a hole punch tool.

Acknowledging the potential installation savings based on this situation, more and more industrial products that used to be mounted in square cut-out are being launched in a round hole mounting version, usually reusing the pushbutton hole dimensions so that the installation engineer can reuse the standard tools of his trade.
