Elobau Sensor Technology's 361G range of grips provide versatility and modularity with up to nine different functions in left- and right-hand versions. Applications include vehicle controls for equipment such as excavators; wheel, backhoe, and skid steer loaders; dozers, other construction, mining, and forestry vehicles; and agricultural and material handling equipment. Up to three Hall-effect thumbwheel controllers and six push-button switches can be mounted in a single 361G; other possible configurations include a four position analog control at the top. Push buttons can be Reed switch contacts with backlit illumination; linear Hall-effect push buttons with 0.5 to 4.5 V output are also available, as are custom laser-printed buttons. Thumbwheel controls use Hall-effect technology and can be offered with redundant output signals as well as LED illumination functions. An optional capacitive presence detection feature is available, and an integrated CAN module reduces the number of wires.
