Wired -vs- Wireless Foot Controls
Wired foot controls have been around for decades. Linemaster created its
first wired foot switch in the 1950’s and have been adapting to
customer requirements and incorporating technological advances ever
since. To date, using copper conductors (physical wires) to transmit
electronic signals is the most reliable way to transmit or receive data.
Technological advancements with wire have helped control issues such as
interference in the field. This interference has been remedied by the
cable manufacturers by adding a shield to the cable, ultimately
protecting the communication between the end users equipment and the
attached foot pedal. The table below shows the Pros and the Cons of
Wired foot controls.
