Potentiometer Foot Pedals
Potentiometer Foot Pedals are part of our range here at Herga. Take a look at our Foot Potentiometers here.
Our potentiometer foot pedals are available as part of our standard range. We have heavy-duty foot potentiometers with guards available. We also have a potentiometer version of our new heavy-duty 6256 and a potentiometer version of our 6210, the 6210-VO with Variable Output.
What is a Potentiometer Foot Pedal?
A potentiometer foot pedal sometimes referred to as “variable speed footswitches” is similar to a standard footswitch in that it is operated by the user's foot. The difference between a foot pedal and a potentiometer foot pedal is that a potentiometer foot pedal can control the speed of the device it is connected to whereas a standard foot pedal will switch the device on or off.
Potentiometer foot pedals are often used in conjunction with a variable speed motor, the amount of pressure on the foot pedal will cause the motor to move faster or slower which will define the speed of the device/machine in use.

Our potentiometer foot pedals are ideal for repetitive use and have a guaranteed long life as many of them have no moving parts which minimises wear and tear.
Because potentiometer foot pedals are often used in industrial or manufacturing environments, many of our products in this range have an optional guard for added user safety. We also have stock models available for fast delivery.
We are also able to offer custom colours and logo’s on our potentiometer foot pedals.
