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.
