The G500-MO is a heavy-duty foot switch that makes it easy to turn electrical equipment on and off with the foot, freeing the hands to perform other operations or providing ergonomic improvement to a workstation. Features all aluminum construction, an oversized guard (5.5” high, 6.2″ wide) with enough room to fit large boots, and an oil/water/splash/dust-resistant enclosure (when used with the proper cable clamp). This is a momentary foot switch, which means that it actuates when your foot is on the pedal, and de-actuates when you release your foot from the pedal. Includes a single Honeywell 20-amp 125/250VAC-rated switch with one common, one normally open, and one normally closed contact (SPDT, Form C). Side cover flaps help protect pedal lever and shaft from oil, solvents, and water. 3/4″-14 N.P.T. threaded conduit entry in back. Ideal for factory, shop, metalworking, iron workers, boom lifts, food processing, riveting, bending, and many more applications. Directly replaces Hercules 531-SWH, 531-SWHO, and 531-SWHOX (slight difference in height). UL/CSA/NEMA Enclosure Type 2, 4, & 13. IEC rating IP56. Size: 9.2″ L x 6.2″ W x 5.5″ H.
