RS PRO Heavy Duty Foot Actuator for Air switch. RS PRO robust diecast aluminium foot actuator foot switch in black finish. The top has a diamond cut surface affording good grip. Foot switches are commonly used on large machinery were hand operated switches are a safety concern. This foot controller pedal is ideal for various applications.
RS PRO offers a range of footswitches and accessories to meet your requirements. Industrial footswitch - ideal for OEM applications. Anti-skid feet - to keep in place when using the foot switch. Hands free control - allow the operator greater freedom of movement.
Operating temperature range -10°C to +40°C. Low profile to reduce operator fatigue. 2 metres of 3mm I/D tubing with reinforced conduit.
Foot switches are commonly used in applications where hands-free control is more practical or safer. Foot controllers can be found on. Industrial machinery and smaller power tools. This heavy-duty foot actuator foot switch is ideal for remote switching in harsh environments where durability is needed.Why would you use a footswitch? As these switches are operated by the person's feet, this means that their hands are free so therefore allows the individual to multitask. Do these footswitches come with a guard? No, a protective guard is not supplied. Actuators, Switch Elements, Tubing & Accessories.
The air operated switch system offers enhanced safety in hazardous areas by allowing remote operation of electrical circuits. The actuator is a bellows which, when compressed moves air down the air tubing to the switch element.
This compressed air then expands a bellows in the switch, which operates the electrical contacts. When used in wet environments or where electrical switching would be dangerous due to arcing, the switch and all electrical wiring can be located outside the hazardous area giving the operator total electrical isolation for the equipment.
Such applications include: Battery charging rooms, laboratories, garages, or wherever explosive gases, vapours or powders may exist. When assembled the air switch and actuator form a sealed system, therefore temperature variation will cause pressure changes, which can in extreme cases affect the performance of the switch. To prevent this the total volume of the system must be kept below a critical value for a given temperature range and, to this end, a maximum length of air tubing (and hence volume) can be given for any combination of switch and actuator.This item is in the category "Business, Office & Industrial\Electrical Equipment & Supplies\Switches\Switch Accessories".
