Switched Head Arrays

Switched head control

Switch-It 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 ⅛" 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.

  • S-C: Short, curved wings
  • L-S: Long, straight wings
  • L-C: Long, curved wings

The 5-switch head array is only available with long, straight wings due to sensor placement and activation area tolerances.
