Linemaster Switch Corporation offers a lineup of industrial foot switches that is unmatched by any other manufacturer out there. Since the company was established, its signature product has been the Hercules series of switches. This line got its name from being the toughest, most rugged switches in the industry.
There are more than 20 models available in the Hercules series – each of them with a full shield, an “Ox” or “O” shield, or without any shield.
Great functionality and rugged design
The Hercules line is designed to handle the most demanding work conditions while taking harsh abuse. Most models come with built-in foot guards, which gives extra foot protection to users in the field. Linemaster recommends this innovative, American-made family of heavy-duty foot switches for a broad variety of applications, including welding and man lifts. Customers can count on the Hercules series’ high functionality and rugged design for a long operational life. Common features of these industrial foot switches include the following:
Safety shoes and metatarsal foot guards are accepted on the models with oversized “O” and “Ox” shields, while the “Ox” design has an extra 19.1-millimetre opening height. The release is achieved in each of the Maintained Contact models simply by pressing the latch with a light forward motion with the toe; this release is placed under the full shield, so that falling objects cannot easily release it.
All of the foot switches in the Linemaster Hercules series are drip-tight, watertight, and oil-tight. Each of them has an IP56 rating and weighs between seven and 8½ pounds, with lengths from 8.38 to 9.13 inches. There are special twin and triple models in the series available on special order to any equipment manufacturer.
