Description

The Vetus FSBR foot switch is designed to operate an anchor windlass (via relay or solenoid), but is also ideal for operating a bow thruster on a sailing yacht. On such boats it is often difficult to find a location for a conventional control panel, where it won't get damaged and is easily reached from behind the wheel.

The electrical connections in the heavy duty Vetus foot switch are made of nickel-plated copper to ensure reliable and corrosion free operation.

This foot switch may be used instead of, or in addition to push button switches (of course always in combination with one or two relays). Features a protective cover to avoid accidental engaging of the solenoids.

Installation

Mark off the spot for the foot switch and drill a 63mm (2-1/2") hole in the deck. Apply a sealant and fit the foot switch using the 6 self-tapping screws included. To ensure a watertight connection between the foot switch and the deck, the screws must be tightened evenly. Connect the wires to the switch using cable terminals.

FAQ's

  • What does an IP rating mean? +

    The IP rating of a product is a unit of scale used to classify solid particle and liquid ingress protection, by using a two number system. The meaning of each number is listed in the below table:

    First Digit
    Number Protection
    0 No protection against contact and ingress of objects
    1 Any large surface of the body, such as the back of a hand, but no protection against deliberate contact with a body part
    2 Fingers or similar objects
    3 Tools, thick wires, etc.
    4 Most wires, screws, etc.
    5 Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment; complete protection against contact (dust proof)
    6 No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust tight)

     

    Second Digit
    Number Protection
    0 No protection
    1 Dripping water (vertically falling drops) shall have no harmful effect.
    2 Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the enclosure is tilted at an angle up to 15° from its normal position
    3 Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful effect.
    4 Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect.
    5 Water projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
    6 Water projected in powerful jets (12.5mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
    6K Water projected in powerful jets (6.3mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any direction, under elevated pressure, shall have no harmful effects.
    7 Ingress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1m of submersion).
    8 The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that it produces no harmful effects.
    9K Protected against close-range high pressure, high temperature spray downs.
