Elobau Sensor Technology offers the 361G as part of its range of modular joystick grips. The grip is available in a left- and right-hand version with up to nine functions. Applications include construction, mining and forestry vehicles, agricultural tractors and combines, forklift trucks, and other material handling equipment. Up to three Hall-effect thumbwheel controllers and six push-button switches can be mounted in a grip. Push buttons can be reed switch contacts with backlit illumination or analog linear Hall-effect controls with 0.5 to 4.5 V. Thumbwheel controls use Hall-effect technology and can be offered with redundant output signals as well as with LED-based backlit and illumination functions. An optional capacitive presence detection feature is available, and the 361G may be delivered with an integrated CAN module. Various color combinations and custom laser-printed symbols are available, and the grip will fit on most heavy- and medium-duty joysticks.
