Low Profile Pneumatic Foot Pedal, Pneumatic Foot SwitchThe Presair system uses a foot pedal joined by tubing to an air switch contained within the smoke evacuator to be switched. Pushing the actuator creates enough pressure to operate the air switch which safely controls the surgical smoke evacuator. There is complete electrical isolation with no voltage – low or high – to worry about at the point of actuation and no external compressed air is required.

Presair’s foot switches and hand controls are commonly used in medical equipment. The controls are pneumatic, therefore, providing a safe switching environment. The pneumatic controls provide surgical smoke evacuator OEMs a low cost and high quality option they need to enhance their product.
