Legend Plate refers to the flattened tags designed specifically to surround pushbuttons, pilot lights, and control panel switches. They are typically rectangular or circular and possess a large hole at the centre so that the plate can fit snugly around the buttons or switches.
Legend plates are widely used for labelling the functions and/or instructions of devices and electrical control panel switches. They explain what the switch, button, or light is about, what they indicate, and/or how to use them.
