Our Pneumatic Footswitches can be seen below. They offer high performance and have a range of customisable options.
What is Pneumatic Footswitch?
Pneumatic footswitches are also known as air operated footswitches. They are often used in a wet environment as they don’t use electricity to operate; instead, when the footswitch is compressed a “puff” or “sip” of air is sent down the connected PVC tubing to an air switch. The air activates the air switch which operates the device in question.
Pneumatic switches are a suitable choice for applications in wet environments as it keeps the water and electricity separate, ensuring the environment is safe for the user.
Industries for Pneumatic Footswitches
Pneumatic footswitches are specifically well suited to applications in the medical industry. They are easily cleaned and easy to use. They are also used throughout a range of different industries including OEM applications and Industrial applications.
As with all footswitches, pneumatic footswitches offer hand-free operation; this gives the user full use of both hands whilst using the switch. This is important for many applications and is one of the benefits of using a footswitch rather than a hand control.
