3-Position Safety Foot Switch
- ANSI B126.96.36.199.4.7 requires when using safe speed (a ram speed of 10 mm/sec (0.39 in/sec]) as a safeguarding method, a three-position hold-to-run control shall be used.
- Extensive accident prevention research has shown that in the event of pain and/or distress, the foot is frequently not removed from the foot pedal.
- Weight is often shifted forward and pressure on the foot pedal is increased rather than removed.
Recognizing this, the safety foot switch features a 3-stage operation. It is designed to stop hazardous movements in machinery whether released or fully depressed in an emergency situation
