Four different models of Fox 2 are available for a better adaptation to your application, as a single or a double pedal, with a two or a three position function. Please note that Fox 221/222 are intended to be used as control devices and Fox 231/232 as safety devices.

Two position function

The machine can start when the pedal is pushed in the bottom position. It is stopped when the pedal is in the top position (released).

Three position function

The machine can start when the pedal is pushed in the distinctive middle position. It is stopped when the pedal is in the top position (released) or in the bottom position (totally pushed). After a stop in the bottom position, the pedal has to be reset.

Single or double pedal

One pedal controls only one movement and the double pedal offers a compact solution when two different movements should be controlled, back and forth for example, one pedal for each direction, both in the same housing.
