Besides the IEC 60601-1 the IEC 60601-2-22 must also be observed for foot-operated control devices for diagnostic and therapeutical laser devices. This standard demands, for example, high requirements for mechanical stability. It requires protection against unintentional actuation and prescribes specific actuating forces. Besides this, certain protection classes – depending on the appropriate application – are determined according to IEC 60529. A mainly redundant design of the switching elements, as well as details concerning the cable and its entry at the foot-operated control device, also belong to the requirements.
The special highlight of the variants with movable protective shield is the low height and the protection against accidental actuation in closed position.
A quick actuation of the protective shield is sufficient to enable the operating mode. This variant is suitable especially for transportable laser units. If you have specific requirements to our foot switches, do not hesitate to contact us.
