Foot Switches

Foot Switches for use in Industrial and Medical Technology Applications

EMO Systems develops and manufactures foot switches, available in wired or wireless models, in single and multi-pedal options, as well as fully customized models.

The foot switch functions as a standard HID (Human Interface Device) keyboard, so there are no drivers that need to be installed –the emo switch arrives ready for use. A unique, 48-bit code is assigned to each foot switch, which completely prevents erroneous triggering by other emo switches or other wireless signals.

The wireless foot switches are configured to appear as a keyboard to your computer.  Using our configuration software, a foot switch press may be configured to appear as any keyboard button press.
