Our facility’s landscaping includes a small pond with a water fountain. The fountain is controlled by a water pump that connects to an electrical box. Using the PBA-01 air switch converter box with a foot pedal attached, we are able to operate the outdoor water pump, turning it on and off, with the step of a foot. The foot pedal survives harsh environments. It was installed October 2014 and is still operating after the cold Wisconsin winter with temperatures as low as -10°F and 14 inches of snow.
The PBA-01 converts electrical equipment to a device controlled by a shockproof/waterproof foot pedal by plugging the equipment to a receptacle box which contains an alternate action air switch, turning the plug into a standard electrical receptacle. Presair’s air switching system deliver complete electrical isolation with zero voltage at the point of actuation.
Presair’s Pneumatic Foot Switch
Let your feet control the power. Plug the air switch converter box into a grounded outlet then plug your lighting equipment into the converter box. The converter box connects to a soft foot pedal, when pressed actuates the alternate action air switch turning on your lights. Alternate snap-action design means that you press down with your foot to turn it on and press the pedal again to turn off for complete hands free patio lighting!
