Product Description

This all-purpose Linemaster foot switch has a reinforced polymeric pedal, a 6' power cord, and a single two-prong outlet for connecting with lights and other electric devices. The 4 amp 125V foot switch allows users to step on the switch's pedal for hands-free on-and-off power. It has maintained operation for press-and-release power activation and termination. The foot switch has a reinforced polymeric body that resists corrosion and rust, and comes with a non-glare finish. Raised ribs on the pedal's surface provide traction, while the non-skip base gives the foot switch stability to prevent sliding on hard floors. Under the foot switch's cover, an integrated adjustable strain relief clamp helps to hold the 6' stranded parallel thermoplastic (SPT) type 2 cord in place. A two-prong plug at the end of the cord connects to electrical outlet, while a two-prong outlet located on the plug's side is provided with a 500W capacity for connecting with the two-prong plugs of the lights or devices to be powered. The foot switch meets Canadian and United States Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standards for quality assurance. Intended for light-duty applications, the foot switch provides access to hard-to-reach outlets and switches.

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.

I have this to switch on and off a desk fan, one tap of the foot and is on or off. no more reaching behind the fan to switch it on or off. l know that sounds lazy, but it is.
One small point, the foot switch is yellow, not teal or whatever color that is as shown.

I used this for our Christmas tree. So much better than a timer. Works great. This can really help in many situations.
