This Linemaster 597-EX foot switch assembly includes two explosion-proof 15 amp 125V, 3/4 HP/10 amp 250V, 1 HP foot switches approved for Class I, Zone I, Group IIA environments, a heavy-duty aluminum guard, and a handle for moving. The foot switches are suitable for use in industrial environments where flammable materials are present and users need hands-free on-and-off power activation. Each switch has momentary operation for quick-release termination of power. The housing is non-spark, heavy-duty aluminum with an integral base plate for protection and is painted high-visibility alert orange for safety. This foot switch assembly has bolt holes at its base for mounting to the floor or equipment and a National Pipe Taper (NPT) 3/4″-14 rigid metal conduit entry in the back for wiring. A divider bar between pedals prevents accidental operation of both pedals at one time. It meets Canadian and United States Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standards for quality assurance and is compliant with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive. It has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 41 for protection against dripping water and touching with tools, wires, etc. This dual explosion-proof foot switch is suitable for use in industrial environments where flammable gases, vapors, or particles are present.

Foot switches are used to turn on and off electrical devices and may also provide control over the device’s speed and mode of operation. They come with up to three pedals and can have a maintained, momentary, variable, or anti-trip switch action. For maintained action switches, one press of the pedal controls the power, whereas momentary action switches require constant pressure on the pedal for power. Variable action switches (also called foot potentiometers) function similarly to momentary action switches, but also provide control over the connected device’s operating speed. Anti-trip action switches require users to release a safety latch before pressing down for momentary action. Foot switches vary in their contact specifications, amp ratings, plugs and receptacles, and material construction to suit different applications, device amperages, plug configurations, and environments. Foot switches are commonly used with power tools, sewing machines, musical instruments, dental equipment, and lighting, and in the construction, laboratory, production, and medical fields, among others.
Linemaster Switch Company manufactures electromechanical, pneumatic, digital, linear Hall effect, and wireless foot switches for use in the industrial, medical, computer, and musical fields, among others. The company, founded in1952, is headquartered in Woodstock, Connecticut, and meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 2001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 standards.
