  4. 4. • A foot switch is a control unit which is operated on machines or systems where tasks using the hands are not possible for ergonomic or safety reasons ‒ For example, the machine operator may need to hold a tool, a piece of metal, another actuator, or any necessary device ‒ In some applications, such as power presses, additional operator protection such as point-of-operation guarding must be provided when a foot switch is used as an actuator • Foot switches are particularly suited for start and stop operations as well as adjustment tasks • The control of 2-speed machines as well as “hold to run” machine cycles are also possible What is a foot switch used for?

  6. 6. A comprehensive offer for any requirements Page 6Property of Schneider Electric | *Never use a protective cover, a trigger mechanism nor a safety door for issuing a normal stop instruction to a machine. Access to the stop control must be as unrestricted as possible and without any constraints. Protective cover* Avoids the risk of accidental operation by falling objects, which could result in unintentional starting of the machine Extended comfort Heel rest avoids discomfort in the base of the backbone due to unbalanced positioning of the body. Hand grip enables to easily carry the foot switch at different places. Trigger mechanism* Enables locking of the pedal in the released position. It prevents the lowering of the pedal in case the foot is not fully inserted into the pedal. This prevents from involuntary actuation of the foot switch. Pedal latching Foot switches with pedal latching device are particularly suited for the control of “hold to run” machines, and also, for adjustments. Atex D (protection against dust) available Single or double pedal Pressing the pedal gives the machine start instruction and, when the pedal reaches its limit, it latches in the operated position. Removing the foot from the pedal will not stop the machine cycle, the pedal remains latched. For issuing a normal stop, the foot is replaced on the pedal and the toe plate is operated: this returns the pedal to the rest position. toe plate Start Run Stop heel rest hand grip Safety door* Requires the intentional motion to lift the door before inserting the foot, to prevent accidental operation. Contact Blocks The foot switch can incorporate 1 or 2 ‘N/C+N/O’ contact blocks with snap action and positive opening , an analog output, with 1 or 2 steps.

  8. 8. • Robustness in harsh environments ‒ Resistance to shocks ‒ Resistance to oil, water, dust ‒ Very long mechanical life: up to 7 million operating cycles • Protection by design: positive opening operations o XPE foot switches: ‒ The pedal hold down and the pedal release actions have a positive actuation fully compliant with IEC 60947-5-1 standard (Electromechanical control circuit devices) ‒ It means that the electro-mechanical design of the XPE foot switch is such that the release of the pedal, to stop the machine for example, directly triggers the opening of the normally closed contacts • Compactness and comfort ‒ The foot switch is designed such that the largeness of the operating pedal is maximized to accommodate all types of footwear (large size, safety boots, …) while restraining the depth of the foot switch Range values Page 8Property of Schneider Electric | Resistance

  12. 12. Property of Schneider Electric | Quiz answers What is a foot switch used for? Q1 A foot switch is operated on machines or systems where tasks using the hands are not possible for ergonomic or safety reasons. Page 12 Answers Is the foot switch range convenient for 2-speed machines? Q2 Yes, The control of 2-speed machines is possible using 2-step foot switches. What is the minimum mechanical life of the foot switch offer? Q3 The minimum mechanical life of XPE offer is 2 million operating cycles. 9002AW offer can reach more than 7 million operating cycles. Has the XPE’s pedal release a positive actuation, according to IEC 60947-5-1? Q4 Yes, the design of the XPE foot switch is such that the release of the pedal directly triggers the opening of the normally closed contacts Which foot switch to choose for an advanced machine tool? Q5 XPEM (blue) or XPER (orange) offers are particularly suited for demanding environment and protection against heavy falling object.
