Electronic Foot Pedal

Over Center Rocker Type/Bi-directional

The rocker type Electronic Foot Pedal is used

to drive off-highway vehicles equipped with
hydrostatic transmissions and/or electronically
controlled engines. The foot pedal typically
provides speed commands to the electronic
transmission or the engine controller, where
the output signal of the foot pedal is
proportional to the angle of the foot pedal
actuation. The rocker type foot pedal is
commonly used on vehicle applications that
have a high duty cycle of direction changes
(forward/neutral/reverse). For example:
warehouse trucks, piggy-back fork trucks, and
other material handling equipment.

The electronic foot pedal features a specially

designed sensor for heavy equipment
applications which uses Hall effect technology.
This special sensor offers two different types
of redundant signals to fit a variety of control
strategies. In addition, the redundant sensors
have independent isolated circuits and
protection against electrical misconnection.

Features yy Robust over-center rocker pedal yy Protected against electrical misconnection

yy 14 +/- 2 degrees angular rotation fore and aft yy IP-66 sealed electronics
yy 3 million full actuation cycle life yy Wide operating temperature
yy Non-contact ratiometric Hall effect sensors yy Withstands high static loads
yy Independent isolated redundant sensors
