Press Brake Wireless Foot Pedal

Wireless Foot Pedal

This is the latest iteration of our standard ADH foot controls, specifically designed for customers who prefer a cable-free workspace around their machine. Our wireless pedal system features three primary hardware components:
Our wireless pedal system consists of a Wireless Remote Module (WRM), which is integrated inside the foot pedal. Additionally, the foot pedal contains a set of three ultrasonic sensors.
The Machine Module (MM) is installed on the press brake and serves as the wireless link between the WRM and PCSS-A.
The Ultrasonic Module (UM) is mounted on the press brake, and in conjunction with ultrasonic sensors in the MM, it monitors the position of the foot pedal.

Wireless Foot Pedal

Overview

Our wireless foot pedal solution is now available as an optional feature for press brake manufacturers utilizing the PCSS-A1 or PCSS-A2 platform. This solution makes it effortless to incorporate wireless functionality into your machines by integrating the wireless module into your existing foot pedal or by designing a new pedal from scratch. The wireless system employs a secure, dual-channel SIL 3 communication method that enables two-way communication between the press brake and the foot pedal. Additionally, the system employs ultrasonic sensors to provide dynamic range and position monitoring. Please note that the image shown is an example of an OEM foot pedal layout.

Key features

Compared with the traditional wired foot switch, wireless foot switch has many advantages.

Safe wireless communications
Our wireless foot pedal system utilizes a secure dual-channel SIL 3 communication method, which allows for two-way communication between the press brake and the foot pedal. The wireless technology was developed by Lazer Safe and has been CE certified by TUV Austria.
Range and distance monitoring
The wireless foot pedal system utilizes an array of ultrasonic sensors installed both in the foot pedal and on the press brake. These sensors are used to triangulate the position of the foot pedal. The operating range and distance of the sensors are configurable and automatically monitored.
Low power consumption
The system's energy efficiency is due to the innovative design of the dual-channel wireless transmission system, low power e-paper display, low power illuminated emergency stop button, and indoor solar charging cell. In contrast to traditional wireless systems that require daily recharging, the low power technology developed by Lazer Safe enables the foot pedal to operate for up to one month before requiring a plug-in recharge.
Rechargeable battery
The supplied lithium-ion battery has enough charge to power the wireless foot pedal for up to one month before requiring a recharge. The remote module features a USB charging port that allows for recharging of the battery without having to remove it from the foot pedal station. This means that the machine operator can simply connect the foot pedal to any USB charger.
Indoor solar charging
The integrated solar charging cell uses ambient light to provide continuous charging and extends the battery life until a plug-in recharge is necessary. Depending on the ambient lighting conditions, the solar cell can increase battery life by up to 20%.
E-paper display
The foot pedal features a low-power E-paper display that shows essential user information, such as the current battery status, wireless connection status, active/sleep mode, and more.

Wireless Remote Module (WRM)

The wireless remote module is a self-contained unit that includes:
12 pulsed safety inputs (6 dedicated and 6 spare).
Dual integrated antennas
E-paper display
Indoor solar charging cell
Rechargeable lithium ion battery
Connections for external USB charging port and wireless pairing button
Pedal active status LED

Wireless Remote Module (WRM)
Also supplied and connected to the WRM are:
An illuminated (red LED) emergency stop button
A set of three ultrasonic sensors
Of the 12 inputs on the WRM, 6 inputs are preconfigured for the following functions;
Down pedal x2 (NO and NC contacts)
Emergency stop button x2 (NC contacts)
Reset button x2 (NO and NC contacts)
Of the remaining 6 spare inputs, these can be custom configured for any auxiliary button functions such as the up pedal, upper and lower tool clamping, etc.

E-Paper Display

The low-power display shows information to the machine operator such as battery level, wireless signal strength and in-range status. The foot pedal identification number can be defined by the press brake manufacturer and also displayed on the CNC to show the operator which foot pedal is paired with the machine.

Machine Module (MM) And Ultrasonic Module (UM)

The Machine Module (MM) and Ultrasonic Module (UM) are fitted to the lower front left and right ends of the press brake. The MM is mounted on the press brake and interfaces between the PCSS-A and the Wireless Remote Module (WRM). The MM communicates wirelessly with the WRM, and also contains a set of two ultrasonic sensors. The UM contains an additional two ultrasonic sensors. The total combination of seven ultrasonic sensors located in the WRM, MM and UM are used to triangulate the position of the foot pedal in relation to the front of the press brake.

Key benefits

Benefits for the press brake manufacturer
  • By far, the simplest, fastest and most cost effective way to incorporate wireless technology and integrates via the existing PCSS-A platform.
  • The only complete wireless safety solution with TUV CE Certified hardware and software.
  • Design flexibility - incorporate into the existing foot pedal design, or design a new pedal from the ground up.
  • Flexibility to incorporate additional wireless controls and functions.
  • Flexibility to tailor wireless functionality and customise the user interface in the CNC via SmartLink.
Benefits for the machine operator
  • Improved ergonomics. The operator has more freedom to move and position the foot pedal.
  • Simple and intuitive operation.
  • Reduced operator fatigue.
  • Eliminate trip hazards.
  • Eliminate potential for cable damage.
  • Clear floor space makes it easier to move trolleys and carts around the front of the press brake.
  • Long battery life means operators can focus on bending parts without having to worry about frequent recharging. The foot pedal can be easily recharged by connecting to any USB charger or a USB port on a PC or the CNC.
