The KG and KR series foot switches are used to control machinery and other equipment, leaving the operator's hands free to do other functions. The sturdiness of the metal and plastic body and the wide range of the available versions provide the proper solution for each control need.
Main features are:
Thermoplastic or metal version
The plastic or metal body gives adequate robustness to the foot switch, for installation in all ambient and application conditions.
Versions complete with or without pedal protection cover
The cover assures protection against accidental foot switch operation, due to sudden tool or heavy material dropping or other shock or vibration. The type without cover, open version, is instead immediately accessible and is preferred when the most important pedal operation is to stop a machine.
Versions with safety lever
The safety mechanism prevents unintentional foot switch activation and excludes the pedal to be pressed if the operator's foot is not completely in place.
Stable pedal base
The foot switch is equipped with rubber feet and metal reinforced base for a firm and non-sliding position and a more reliable and safe activation.

IP20 for terminals
IP54 for body housing

KG series - Self-extinguishing double-insulation polymer thermoplastic
