Deck and Mooring
The patented rugged foot switch is ideally suited for use in harsh
marine and offshore environments. It is unique as it has no moving
parts, so its function is unaffected by exposure to weather, salt,
water and other abrasive materials.
Load is applied to an element in the normal way which causes
stress, and the resulting strain is sensed by strain gauges. The
electrical signal from the strain gauges is monitored, and when a
pre-defined applied load is reached, a signal passes to a trip level to
provide switch function.
