Industrial footswitches control the motor of light or heavy duty welding machinery with a simple step on a pedal to start and stop. Footswitches also act as a “dead’s man switch” safeguarding the operator, from potential accident or injury if distracted, by bringing the machine to an emergency stop.
The precise and proper manufacturing of footswitches is a must, which makes a significant difference in yielding consistent results and added safety when accomplishing a variety of welding applications.
Put your foot down to take note of what design and engineering features are key for this vital piece of industrial accessory.
We put the spotlight on our Varior series, a footswitch offered either in standard or industrial configurations with enhanced performance and protective benefits compatible a wide range of welding equipment brands. For detailed specifications of the Varior line of footswitches, contact Linemaster Switch Corp.
Strong and sturdy steel housing on the Varior ensures long lasting performance, equipped with a foot operated potentiometer switch.
The ergonomic design of the Varior enables seamless operation, engineered with a rugged foot switch and a heal rest option for the industrial Varior line, which is designed for excellent foot positioning on the pedal.
The Varior is also adaptable, with the ability to be used as a replacement switch, including welding equipment brands such as Miller®, Hobart®, Lincoln® and ESAB®. Supplied with a 25 foot cord set and a multi-pin connector, the Varior accommodates with your existing equipment to retro-fit to most welding equipment.
The need for variable speed is what we’re is all about: as the leader of the foot switch industry, Linemaster Switch is excited to attend FABTECH 2014, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event in Atlanta, GA this November 11 to 13 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
We’ll be an exhibitor at the event to unveil the Varior RF wireless foot control, a “plug and go” system designed to work with all major brand name welding equipment. Learn more here.
