The shells of the 36xG joystick handles are available in various colors, which can be a
convenient feature for applications with multiple functions in the operator’s cab, as it
allows the cab designer to implement maximum differentiation from competitive products
at limited costs, the company said.
Parameters such as hysteresis, sensibility and distance of switching on
and off can be adjusted through the
controller software. The sensor works
with a 5 Vdc supply voltage and delivers up to 150 mA through an open
The 36xG series of handles is
available in two basic versions, right
hand (361G) and left hand (362G).
Ergonomics were a key consideration of the design of the handles,
the company stressed. The handle
shafts are bent forward and inward
to allow ergonomically correct hand
and arm joint angles and positions
when the joystick grip is incorporated in seat-mounted armrests or
The smooth integrated handle is
also designed to keep the operator’s
hands in the right ergonomic position to reach controls integrated in
the handle and provides arm relaxation even in configurations without
an additional arm support.
The tilted handle head allows symmetrical and fatigueless thumb actuation of auxiliary controls (
pushbuttons, thumbwheels, mini joysticks)
located on the large actuation board.
Meanwhile, the face plate is aligned
to provide the best possible visibility
and instant identification of all controls,
A recessed area was designed to
provide perfect grip when the thumb
is not used during the actuation of the
joystick on which the handle is mounted, keeping the hand in the best possible position and limiting accidental
actuation of auxiliary controls.
In order to make this new concept
of handle available for mounting on as
many existing joysticks as possible, a
wide range of mechanical interfaces
and rubber boots have been designed
as standard accessories. This is
intended to allow the handle to be
mounted to a wide variety of mechanical, electromechanical, hydraulic or
Both the right- and left-hand versions provide for as many as nine
different functions, thanks to its modular, interchangeable face and rear
plates associated with a modular
Up to three analog thumbwheels
combined with six pushbutton switches or two analog thumbwheels combined with seven pushbutton switches
can be mounted in each of the right-and left-hand versions, along with the
optional capacitive presence sensor.
Other configurations are available,
elobau said, including an auxiliary
four-position analog control installed
at the top of the handle.
The pushbutton can be either digital
switches based on Reed technology
and available with or without backlight
and activation light, or analog linear
Hall effect pushbuttons with 0.5 to 4. 5
V output. The patented Nano push-
button switch mounts and connects
directly onto the PCB.
