Tailor-made for your application - the modular foot switch concept from BERNSTEIN.
As a leader in the field of industrial foot switches, BERNSTEIN AG puts more than 50 years of experience into the development and manufacture of its products. The wide range of designs demonstrates the company's specialization in foot switch solutions for different applications.
Foot Switches for industrial applications:
Made for working practice - foot switches for every application
Versions with a pressure point, for example, are used where a 2-step shift is to be operated with only one pedal. Switches with pedal latching offer protection against unintentional actuation due to their locking function, even in the event of external influences such as strong vibrations. Foot switches equipped with bistable switching function enable constant machine operation even after the pedal is released, which is only interrupted when the pedal is pressed again.
Furthermore, the switches can be equipped with fixed or folding protective hoods, folding pedal guards or emergency stop devices for manual operation. This ensures the greatest possible safety in every working situation. This also applies to use in potentially explosive atmospheres. BERNSTEIN offers an Ex foot switch approved for Zone 1 and 2.
Specific switch solutions reflect the company's practical experience and demand orientation. For example, a power contactor integrated in the housing makes it possible to control a motor without an additional switch box. For stepless control tasks, a foot switch with linear voltage or current output was developed, in which an integrated Hall element engages in the switching insert.
But the need for quick and easy commissioning is also met by the manufacturer. A product version assembled with cable and connector offers immediate help in uncomplicated application cases.
The latest development from BERNSTEIN AG is the first DGUV (BG) approved enabling foot switch. It represents the technological advancement of the classic foot switch and is thus a novelty on the market.
BERNSTEIN foot switches are used wherever manual operation is not possible for ergonomic or safety reasons. Here they are used to switch work and production processes on and off. Robustness and extreme durability are just as much a matter of course as mechanical stability, functionality and absolute safety.
Due to our decades of experience, we are able to implement customer requirements individually and to supplement them with our own know-how in a target-oriented manner. Customized adaptations of the foot switches are possible, our sales team will be happy to advise you.
