M-FORCE® Accelerator Pedal Foot Switch
  • M-FORC SD500 Accelerator Pedal Foot Switch

The M-FORCE® Accelerator Foot Switch provides “on/off” and “speed” reference signals to solid-state controllers such as traction or variable frequency drives. This rugged, all metal device is ideal for harsh environments and off-road electric vehicles in material handling and mining. The gain and offset settings can be factory configured for specific applications, eliminating the risk of improper field adjustments and resulting in increased safety and reliability. The device offers a magnetic rotary sensor instead of a resistive potentiometer device but still uses an electro-mechanical neutral sensing snap switch for added safety and provides trouble free operational cycles.
