Hands free for other activities

If any work steps occur in a work process that do not ensure automatic indexing or if manual confirmation by the user is required, a foot switch can be used for this purpose. If the hands are blocked for production steps, one takes the feet to the assistance.

By stepping on a foot pedal, one switches the contacts in electrical circuits. This is how you control production and work processes. This eliminates the need to touch the monitor or the keyboard itself.

Foot switches also come in a wide variety of different switching and contact variants, which allow for a wide range of applications: from single-pole on-off switches to multi-pole changeover switches. Foot switches are important components especially for personal and machine safety. They stop dangerous machine functions and can prevent restarting.
