TER has acquired decades of experience in designing and manufacturing footswitches, providing now two series of single or double footswitches, used to control any kind of industrial machine tools. They operate as auxiliary controllers of electrical motors through a power interface, such as a contactor. In the industrial environment the machines often operate in difficult thermal conditions (low or high operating temperatures) with great thermal shifts between night and day, and they are subject to a variety of weather conditions. They therefore need components protected against weather effects, resistant to extreme temperatures, with high mechanical and electrical durability and resistance, accuracy in control. All components must be precise, reliable and safe to ensure good handling control, guarantee maximum operating safety, prevent personal injury and damage to objects.
