Customers can choose from an unmatched selection of foot switches and accessories from Linemaster Switch Corporation, including a series of wireless foot switches. Each of these innovative units works through radio technology, and it also removes the clutter of wires underfoot, which can be an annoyance or hindrance to the worker.
Six Hercules models of these wireless switches are available, and all of them are dust-tight, drip-tight, watertight, and oil-tight – making them suitable for various work scenarios.
Fully submersible in the water
The company offers three standard models of wireless foot switches, as well as three with handles. Each of the standard models has a heavy-duty, weather-resistant construction for harsh working environments and is available in up to three switch functions. Workers may use multiple systems in the same vicinity at the same time. Each has a 40-foot range of radio-frequency transmission, and the transmitter operates on three AA batteries, with 700 hours of battery life at 50 per cent duty cycle.
Customers have a choice of SPDT, DPDT, or TPDT circuitry among the three standard models. Other features and benefits of these foot switches by Linemaster:
