ZJSHUYI The principle and characteristics of #footswitch

Share This Post

The foot switch is a type of switch. It is mainly used to operate the circuit by stepping on it, and it can also control the size of the current. The #footswitch is mainly used in medical equipment and stamping equipment.The #footswitch is a switch that controls the on-off of the circuit by stepping on or stepping on it. It is used in the control circuit that cannot be touched by both hands to replace the hands to achieve the purpose of operation. A simple #footswitch is actually a built-in travel switch. When the foot pedal gives a signal, the switch is executed. But in the field of welding, the function of the foot switch also plays the role of controlling the output current.

#Footswitches can also be divided into two categories: first, mechanical foot switches; second, inductive foot switches. The mechanical foot switch is a traditional rack and pinion drive, and the induction type is based on the principle of electromagnetic induction. In terms of material, there are flame-retardant engineering plastics, steel plates, aluminum alloys, etc.

There is a micro switch inside the #footswitch. The micro switch has two groups of contacts: normally open and normally closed. When the foot pedal is pressed down to touch the micro switch, the normally open contact is closed and the normally closed contact is disconnected. The general application is to wire normally open contacts and use them as foot switches.

#Footswitch features

1. The surface is spray-coated with excellent impact resistance, wear resistance and high temperature resistance (180 degrees).

2. There is a cable head at the lead-out part of the cable, so the waterproof, oil-proof and impact-proof effects are outstanding.

3. The standard configuration of cable lead-out length is 2 meters

4. The built-in micro switch has obtained UL, VDE, TUV, CE, CCC certification.

5. The built-in micro switch contacts are plated with 24K gold.

6. Achieve IP65 protection level.

7. All models have passed CE certification.

#Footswitch precautions

1. According to the nature of the load and the current value, please pay attention to the rated load of the product.

2. When handling and moving, please pay attention to the occurrence of short circuit and open circuit in the internal wiring.

3. Please pay attention to the protection level of the product when using it in places with a lot of water, oil, dust, etc.

4. Heavy pressure and impact are the direct causes of product damage, please be careful when using it.
