PLUS+1-compliant KEP3 electronic foot pedal is a bi-directional, over-center rocker pedal that drives vehicles equipped with hydrostatic transmissions and/or electronically controlled engines. It delivers commands to the electronic transmission or the engine controller, where the output signal of the foot pedal is proportional to the angle of the foot pedal actuation. Fourteen degrees of angular rotation fore and aft and a sensor designed for heavy equipment applications use Hall effect technology.

Sensor provides two different types of redundant signals and feature independent isolated circuits and protection against electrical misconnection.

It provides smooth operation for applications with a high duty cycle of direction changes, such as warehouse trucks, piggyback fork trucks and other material handling equipment.

It offers a 3 million full actuation cycle life with a wide operating temperature, IP-66 sealed electronics and the ability to withstand high static loads. Redundant outputs integrate into safety functions to SIL 2 (Safety Integrity Level 2 according to IEC 61508) Performance Level d (per ISO 13849-1), including the Sauer-Danfoss H1 Automotive Control system.  The pedal is also compliant to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards FMVSS 124 and 302.
