Foot Pedal Air Switch Options & Descriptions

We offer three different variations of our Foot Pedal Air Switch Kits to ensure you can operate your equipment according to your preference. See below for the our options as well as a description explaining the differences.Our foot pedal can easily withstand harsh environments. Presair’s foot pedal air actuators are pneumatic foot switches. The pneumatic foot pedals create a shockproof, explosion proof and waterproof system as there is no voltage at the point of actuation. When the foot pedal is pressed it sends a pulse of air through a tube to our air switch which then operates a piece of equipment.Standard length of tubing supplied with Presair’s foot pedals is 10 feet, with other lengths available.
