Hands-free operation for medical equipment: Herga supplies 6226 series foot switch to J3M Diffusion for photopolymerisation control
Herga Technology, the UK’s leading switching and sensing component manufacturer, has launched a new range of engineered heavy-duty footswitches aimed at operator control for industrial production environments.
Footswitches, also known as foot pedals, are available in different shapes and sizes many with customisable options. Our footswitches are used for applications in many industries including; Medical, Industrial Machinery and Custom Solutions.
In the majority of instances, a footswitch is selected for use because it allows the operator to multi task. Using a footswitch means that the user has both hands free to be able to complete work effectively. This is really useful in places such as a call centre, when workers are using a headset to speak on the phone, often a footswitch will be used to answer the phone so that the worker still has both hands free to operate a computer and/or make notes.
