Foot Pedal Switch

Foot Pedal Switch

A Foot Pedal Switch is a switch operated by the foot. They come in many shapes, sizes and colours and are well used throughout different industries and for a wide range of applications.

As a foot switch manufacturer we believe that we have a foot pedal switch to suit any application. Many of our products have a stock model for fast delivery or for specific custom applications we also have features which can be customised and a range of accessories compatible with many of our products.  

What is a Foot Pedal Switch?

A Foot Pedal Switch is operated by the foot. They are also referred to as footswitches, foot pedals, foot actuated switches etc.

There are different types of foot pedal switches and these can be used throughout many industries. Our foot pedal switches are well used within the medical sector, for these types of applications we have a range with medical approvals. 

We also have a range suited to applications in the industrial sector, these foot pedal switches have added features to make sure they are suitable for this harsh environment; footswitch guards and emergency stop buttons are common additions to these types of products. 

Reasons to use a Foot Pedal Switch

In many cases, a foot pedal switch is used because it allows the user to multitask by enabling them to operate their machinery or computer “hands free”. If the user is in a call centre, a footswitch can be used to answer the phone so the user can operate the computer with two hands. 

Using a foot pedal switch can also ensure the work space is kept clean and decluttered. The footswitch stays on the floor meaning there is more room on the desk, using and hand control or hand switch would not have the same effect. 

We have a range of Bluetooth foot switches which leave the work space even tidier as they are wire free.
