Linemaster introduces its Medical Grade RF Wireless foot control, a plug-and-go system for new applications or as a replacement for existing wired solutions. This system eliminates cord clutter on the floors while also providing the freedom that wireless has to offer. Linemaster's standard RF Wireless foot controls are offered with up to 5 digital and 3 analog switch functions, with additional switch functions available upon request. Linemaster's RF Technology utilizes the IEEE 802.15.4 standard and operates in the worldwide ISM 2.4 GHz frequency band. The proprietary communication scheme does not require bi-directional link or acknowledgement, which greatly reduces the amount of potential interference. This results in a higher quality and failsafe wireless system. The transmitter (foot pedal) is powered by 3 AA alkaline batteries, providing 400 hours of operation at 50 percent duty cycle. Additionally, the transmitter meets the provisions of IP68 degree of protection.
