Perfectly balanced function, usability and price
The VKF 2-MED foot control was especially developed for the high demands of medical equipment: a solid foot control with an ergonomic design for reliable switching functions. The wedge-shaped central bar prevents accidental simultaneous actuation of both pedals and additionally serves as a foot rest. The switch is narrow, measuring 223 x 142 x 32 mm, and yet stable.
High quality and cost efficiency
This control is also well-suited to costsensitive applications, without any reductions in quality, reliability or ergonomic comfort. The ergonomic design of the new foot control is immediately apparent. The enclosure is made of high-quality thermoplastic which surpasses the shock resistance requirements of IEC 60601-1. The wedge-shaped central bar prevents accidental simultaneous actuation of both pedals; and between actuations it can be used as a foot rest. Pedals can optionally be fitted with two micro switches and pressure points to allow for a two-step actuation and to give the user tactile feedback.
To sum up: as a Value-Line switch, the VKF 2-MED is a medical control
device characterised by high quality, reliability and low cost.
