The Kosmos series electronic pedals are ideal for indoor vehicles where the pedal must be part of the bottom plate in the foot well of the vehicle, as thanks to the extremely low profile they are located underfloor very closed to the platform.
SUITABLE FOR single-pedal counterbalanced forklift trucks used in the food, chemical and metallurgical industries.

HALL EFFECT TECHNOLOGY
An hall-effect sensor, integrated in the housing of the pedal, detects the field strength of a magnet integral with the footboard. It guarantees a reliable signal and immune to premature failures due to mechanical wear.
The magnet - integral with the footboard - and the electronic board - integral with the housing - are positioned in the optimal position to reduce overall dimensions and remove moving connecting parts as well as redundant mechanical components.
PROGRAMMABLE ELECTRONIC BOARD
The programmable electronic board allows to set up the output signal values and the trigger threshold for the switch signal without hardware interventions and manual calibrations. It guarantee the highest level of reliability, precision and versatility.
Double output versions are obtained by integrating on the same electronic support two sensors with completely independent and galvanically isolated circuits, in compliance with functional safety standards.
The output signal and the running consent signal circuits are integrated on a single contactless electronic board without any need for elements subject to wear, like microswitches and other mechanical connections.
ISOLATION OF THE ELECTRONIC BOARD
The compartment for the positioning of the electronic board is obtained from the housing structure in order to ensure total isolation from external environment and maximum mechanical robustness, at the same time.
RESIN-COATED BOARD COMPARTMENT
It ensures absolute impermeability to water/dust/corrosive agents infiltrations and makes the electronic board compartment a completely sealed subassembly of the product structure.
RETURN TO STARTING POSITION
It is implemented to maintain the minimum overall dimensions and at the same time to guarantee the redundancy of the springs, a suitable operating load as well as a high life cycle.
The number of connector pins is determined by the chosen electronic configuration; it is possible to install additional models upon customer's request.
