More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • FOOT ON/OFF SWITCH: The DCT Foot Switch enhances safety and saves time spent searching for the off switch to prevent injury in emergency situations; Much better plan than looking for that switch under your woodworking electric motor table while supporting a heavy sheet of medium-density fiberboard (MDF)
  • HANDS-FREE SAFETY: Hands-free woodworking machine control means both hands on your work for safety and control; No need to free a hand to hunt for your off switch; Operate your tools with hands-free convenience and easily stop tool with the tap of your foot when you need to drill a new hole, change bits, or if an emergency occurs
  • COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR MACHINES: No variable speed control (pedal itself is not a speed control) but is compatible with variable speed equipment; Switch allows hands-free operation when using router, sander, drill press, wood lathe, scroll saw, wood carving tool, or even a meat grinder or any 115 Volt AC, 15 amp or less machine
  • EASY TO USE: Plug the attached 3-prong 4-foot (1.2m) long power cord into a grounded 115 Volt outlet and plug your machine or tool into the foot switch 3-prong receptacle on the front base; Push the pedal forward for power output and push the pedal forward again to shut off the power; Push to turn on and push to turn off (not billy deadman style)
  • TAKE IT ANYWHERE: Heavy-duty plastic construction with texturized pedal top for maximum foot grip; 4-foot (1.2m) long 3-prong power cord allows for versatile use anywhere; 2 mounting plates on base allow foot pedal to be mounted on plywood for maneuverability or on a flat surface flooring for stable use (mounting hardware screws not included); Foot pedal is 6” L x 3.5” W x 2.75” top height tapering to 1.25” inch (15.2cm x 8.9cm x 7cm/3.2cm)

 

I use an on/off foot pedal foot switch (different model, manufacturer and specs) for hands free control of my March Pump while brewing.  One foot press turns the pump on or off. Other possible applications could be to control a keg washer or draft line cleaning pump.  Note: Always be cautious when using your pump with hot liquids and read and follow manufacturers directions.
