Foot Switches Ease Machine Control
FM Series foot switches from Altech
Corp. offer solutions for light- or
medium-duty applications where
hands-free operation is required to
start and stop equipment. They can
be used to control dentistry tools
and medical devices, conveyor
belts, sewing machines in textile
factories, and many other types of machines across industries. Standard fea-
tures and a wide range of available options expand application possibilities.
These foot switches are available in a wide variety of pedal colors (with or
without imprinting) with up to six pedals per foot switch meeting typical
contact and switch insert configurations. Two levels of ingress protection (IP
43 and IP 65) are standard. The switches are available with momentary,
maintained, or two-stage momentary activation modes. Their electrical rating
is 5 A/125-250 V AC and circuits are SPDT-SB, DPDT-SB, and 2x SPDT-SB.
Additional standard features include UL/CSA-approved snap action switches
and cable strain relief. They can be supplied with or without multi-conductor
cable. The switches can operate in a wide temperature range from -20º C
(-4º F) up to 80º C (176º F).
Options include additional IP 68 protection level, specially designed
gold-plated contacts for low-current applications, high-current switch inserts,
several strain relief designs (standard straight-through, bend protection, and
trumpet pull/bend protection with protection levels IP 68), shielded cable,
custom connectors, and metal guards in standard and custom colors. Medical versions with IEC 60601-1 certification are available.
The Flex I/O HDMI 4i2o and Flex I/O SDI 4i2o cards from Magewell is designed for capture devices to output and playout applications. Both feature four input channels and two outputs. Setting the
Flex I/O family apart from other interface cards, all inputs and outputs can be used simultaneously
with independently differing resolutions, frame rates and processing settings. Each input channel
can also be routed to multiple software applications in parallel, enabling concurrent tasks such as
live streaming, recording and playout, all from a single card.
The Flex I/O HDMI 4i2o features HDMI connectivity and supports HD and 2K video with up to eight channels of embedded audio per
input or output. The Flex I/O SDI 4i2o captures and outputs video up to 2048 x 1080 over 3 Gbps SDI interfaces, plus up to 16 channels
of embedded audio in each SDI signal. SDI input channels, as well as the two outputs, can be paired for dual-link SDI connectivity.
