For those electronic keyboards with an input jack labeled "SUSTAIN," the FC5 is used in the same manner the sustain pedal on an acoustic piano is used. A specially designed rubber bottom grips the floor and stays put while you play. The FC5 can also be utilized as an FS controller for synthesizers, tone modules and drum machines.

I would just like to add that an earlier review suggested that the pedal only sustains upon releasing - if using a Yamaha electric piano, if you have the pedal pressed down when you turn the piano on, this reverses the polarity of the pedal, so could be the cause of and solution for this.
This has a metal base so more weighty than the cheaper plastic options so no chasing around with your foot as it stays in place well.
Ideally suited for keyboards and beginners rather than more expensive digital pianos due to it not having the half-pedal function, but a wide surface area for foot contact which makes it easier for using.
Keyboard Sustain Switch is the best description.
Up until recently, I had a Hammond SK2 dual-manual organ "clone" - and used the corresponding Hammond EXP-50 expression pedal.
While the EXP-50 pedal is built like a tank, it is perhaps too heavy. My main gripe with the EXP-50 is I play the organ, standing up, as I have my e.piano below it. The EXP-50 isn't great to use standing up. I sold the EXP-50 with my Hammond SK2.
I bought a new Hammond "clone" - a Mag C2 organ. I needed a new volume/expression pedal - and my main thought was the Yamaha FC-7 pedal as everyone else raves about it. I now can see why. It does look a bit too generic for my taste though - not very stylish. It feels as solid as the EXP-50, and feels just as solid. I haven't noticed it sliding around on the floor either.
However, I works great - and important for me, with a 3 min adjustment (unscrew ONE screw, pull out a metal clip, slide the whole mechanism and footplate itself, further back about 1cm, then replace the metal clip and screw) - it now works easily standing up - without any strain on the ankle or knee. Great result. And, it's much less expensive than the EXP-50.
Also quite handy, the cable wraps up inside the pedal when being stored - although that is a bit fiddly to do.
