FAQs

What are the different types of switching options?
Switches are components that switch a circuit on or off by making contact or breaking contact, the two most common are:
Non-latching (Momentary) – this type of foot switch makes contact when you push it but breaks contact when you release it.
Latching (Maintained) – this type of foot switch needs to be pressed once for ON and again for OFF

Why would you use a footswitch?
As these switches are operated by the person’s feet, this means that their hands are free so therefore allows the individual to multitask.
