AirTurn, Inc. is launching the ATFS-2, designed to be the quietest consumer foot switch on the market today, as a companion to its BT-105 page turner for the iPad

The ATFS-2 features a proprietary "mechanism free" design, where there are no moving parts aside from the molded hinge.  The switch is actuated with a rare earth neodymium magnet and a rhodium reed switch, both of which are embedded within the body of the foot switch.

I think we've come up with a home run page turning pedal system for the iPad and Bluetooth-equipped computers that is easy to use, wireless with the latest Bluetooth technology, and hands down the most silent foot switch on the consumer market today.

AirTurn, Inc. is introducing the ATFS-2, a new silent foot switch designed to be the quietest consumer foot switch on the market today, as a companion to its BT-105 Bluetooth hands free page turner for the iPad and Bluetooth-equipped Mac and PC computers. The ATFS-2 features a proprietary "mechanism free" design, where there are no moving parts aside from the molded hinge. The switch is actuated with a rare earth neodymium magnet and a rhodium reed switch, both of which are embedded within the body of the foot switch. Manufactured in Colorado, the ATFS-2 is injection molded with a unique blend of high strength plastics, which makes the foot switch virtually indestructible.

"When I first started using computers as digital sheet music readers 10 years ago, I fell in love with the idea of being able to carry my entire library in a single device and marking up my music with digital ink," says Hugh Sung, VP and Co-Founder of AirTurn, Inc. "The hardest part of putting this digital system together was finding a way to turn the pages without having to press a button with my hand, which I really wanted to keep on my piano while I played. I tried using various programmable foot switches, but they were all difficult and clunky to use. My dream page turning foot switch would need 3 things: it would have to be easy to use, it would have to be wireless (since I hated the look of dangling cables), and most importantly, it would need to be perfectly silent, since I had to turn pages in recording sessions and classical music concert halls. I think we've come up with a home run page turning pedal system for the iPad and Bluetooth-equipped computers that is easy to use, wireless with the latest Bluetooth technology, and hands down the most silent foot switch on the consumer market today."

Up to two ATFS-2 foot switches can be connected to the AirTurn BT-105 Bluetooth page turner to trigger forwards and backwards page turns. The BT-105 features fast, easy pairing with devices like the iPad, long rechargeable battery life, and compatibility with a wide variety of iPad apps and most document and presentation programs for the Mac and PC.
