Switched Head Arrays

Switched head control

Switch-It's traditional switched head arrays use zero-touch proximity sensors which are specifically designed for power wheelchair application and are less susceptible to interference from high electromagnetic fields generated by power wheelchairs.

The HDR-4M2 is a 3-switch head array with two 3.2 mm monojack ports for a dedicated external mode switch to provide the 4th and 5th functions as desired. HDR-5 is a 5-switch head array with a dedicated sensor for reverse (choose -RL for reverse on left wing or -RR for reverse on right wing) and a dedicated sensor for mode in the opposite wing. A dipswitch panel on the back of the head array gives the ability to turn the sensor on or off.
