Pneumatic Foot Switch

Do you worry about switching on your power tools or outdoor electrical equipment when water may be present? Now there’s a solution! Presair’s air pneumatic foot switch completely isolates the switch from the equipment you need to operate, just by plugging it in. When you operate the foot pedal, you force air through a long tube connected to your electric equipment. The air trips the switch on your equipment. Your foot switch is completely isolated from your electric equipment, removing any risk of shock when you turn on the switch.
