    Default Air Horn Foot Switch

    Couldnt find a better section to put this in so I chose this one.

    Who makes the foot switches that control things such as the air horns and Q's.

    I have looked on our apparatus and I couldnt find a name on the switches themselves. I need to purchase a couple for a project I am going to be starting here in a month or so.

    Any input would be great. Thanks.

    Spartan's spec shows them as a "Linemaster SP491-S81 foot switch."

    Check out this link, second photo down. This is the typical switch, at least that I always see.

    Hope this helps.

    Allied Electronics (www.alliedelec.com) shows it as their Catalog #842-6680 (may be variations to the number depending on the configuration you want). In stock, price - $19.92. Newark InOne (www.newark.com) also shows it, none in stock, 10 day lead time, call for price.

    Stay safe out there, everyone goes home!
