Release control by foot actuation: Foot switch with enabling function

Well protected from all sides: foot switch with protective cover

The aluminium pressure die-cast protective shroud fully shields the pedal at the top and sides while the wide base provides a high degree of stability. It reliably prevents accidental operation from above by falling objects or careless operation from the side. Due to its robust construction the protective shroud withstands a drop of 20 kg from a height of 1 m.

Foot switch solutions for sophisticated technical requirements

You will therefore find models with a pressure point being used where a 2-way circuit is to be operated with only one pedal. With their blocking function, switches with a pedal lock offer protection against inadvertent actuation even in the case of external influences such as heavy vibrations. Foot switches equipped with a bistable switching function allow constant machine operation even after releasing the pedal which is only interrupted when the pedal is operated again. In addition, the switches can be equipped with fixed or hinged protective hoods, hinged pedal guards or emergency stop devices for manual operation. This ensures maximum possible safety in all work situations

Specific switch solutions demonstrate the practical experience and requirement orientation of the company. A power contactor integrated into the housing, for example, enable a motor to be controlled without additional junction boxes. A foot switch featuring variable controlling current and voltage outputs with integral Hall element in the switch insert, is available for continuous control applications.

But the manufacturer also meets the demand for fast, simple commissioning. A product model with preassembled cable and plug offers immediate assistance in uncomplicated applications. BERNSTEIN latest development is the first DGUV (BG)-approved enable foot switch. It is a technological further development of the classic foot switch and is unique on the market. Customer specific versions of our foot switch range are available, our team will be happy to advise you.
