Footrest – Human Machine Interface

Technology, Ergonomics and Style together for comfort and wellness achievement, an essential condition for improving life and work quality. 

A proper posture is essential inside in a driver cabin like in a any kind of workstation. In this context, the legs position plays a central role, especially when certain pedals and foot-controlled sensitive surfaces are present.

SPII platforms make the position adjustable by means of manual and/or automatic controls according to the user’s biometric data. They can host various types of pedals and controls; shapes, sizes and surface materials are customized according to the application. Further integrations include heating systems, functions for measuring contact pressure and human presence detection systems.

The technology used takes into account the most demanding operational requirements and enables high reliability standards and durability over time.

Style, Design and Ergonomics are defined according to the specific application always with the human factor priority and the requirements of the referent market.

The interface with the vehicle may be customized and configured with electric connections and/or communication protocols (Can Open, Ethernet, Profinet etc). The most suitable safety level, including SIL certification, can be defined for each single function.

All of our products are validated in compliance with the strict railway regulations and according to the design rules defined on the basis of know-how and feedback received from the field.

SPII is the Center of Competence of Schaltbau Group and Thanks to its international presence is close to its customers and focuses on meeting the operator’s requirements worldwide, offering its historical engineering experience in terms of Technology, Style and Ergonomics.
