Foot Switch with Pedal Cover

Have you ever actuated your foot switch accidentally? So that this would not happen again we have the answer: We now offer (besides our established anti-trip mechanism) a hinged pedal cover made of stainless steel. Our safety option for your foot switches. Before actuating the pedal, the cover has to be lifted with the forward section of your foot. After actuating the pedal and leaving active pedal zone, the protection drops down to initial position – your pedal is protected again.

A new USB interface is added to the ASA foot switch line

With the new USB interface it is now possible to directly connect ASA foot switches to a PC or an Apple computer. Any possible shortcut that normally would be used with a keyboard can now be triggered by foot. That way your hands stay free:
You can easily forward or backward your PowerPoint presentation, without having to use a presenter. That way your presentation is a lot smoother and more professional.
Doctors can use the USB foot switch with their medical devices. Ultrasound images, for example, can be frozen on screen or a snapshot can be saved on a hard drive, while the treatment itself is not interrupted.
ASA foot switches with an USB interface can greatly improve your professional work: If you are a sound or video editor, you can play, pause or forward your media with your foot and therefore can become a lot more efficient.
There are numerous ways to use the new USB interface foot switch, but they all have one thing in common: the ergonomics of your workplace and your efficiency will be significantly improved.

The new ASA USB foot switch can be an additional or the only input device for your application.
With our supplied software, shortcuts can easily be programmed (Win/Unix/OSX specific as well) and due to an internal memory, it only needs to be done once. As soon as the shortcut is saved to the USB foot switch, it can be used on any computer (Windows, Apple, Linux) without having to install the software or a driver.
However, the very first programming has to be done on a Windows computer. We are happy to program the USB foot switch for your specific needs prior to delivery. That way you only need to plug it in and start working…


  • 1- or 2-pedal
  • 3-pedal USB foot switches will be programmed with your desired configuration prior to delivery. Currently it is not possible to program the 3-pedal USB foot switch yourself.
  • These colors are available on short notice: black; red; yellow; blue; light gray. Other colors on request.

Special features:

  • Plug & Play, no drivers needed.
  • Easily programmable shortcuts (Win/Unix/OSX specific as well). The signal will either be trigged by pressing and/or depressing the foot switch.
  • The shortcut(s) will be saved on an internal memory, that way the foot switch is ready for use at any computer, without having to install a driver or software.
  • A maximum of 8 USB foot switches can be connected to a single computer.

Application areas:

  • Scanning, controlling of medical devices, security systems, presentations, editing and a lot more…

Contact our experts today or visit us for a detailed product presentation either at our headquarters or at the SPS 2014 in Nürnberg.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
