Consultation with our customers is absolutely necessary in order to supply a suitable and reliable joystick solution. We would like to know exactly how and where the device will be used! Which are the special details that should be taken into account? Which are the prevailing conditions in the work environment? Spohn+Burkhardt’s wide assortment of joysticks, handles, buttons and electrical components offer almost endless possibilities. As a result, very special and complex customer requirements can be met, quickly and without complications.
Following questions are important:
- Functionalities: how often is the joystick used? Which functions should it be used to perform? How may switch stages are used? How many axes do you want to control: 1, 2 or 3?
- External conditions: must it withstand extreme temperatures? Should it be weatherproof or saltwater resistant? Does it come into contact with oil, ozone or UV radiation?
- Workload: in which market is the joystick going to be used? How large or heavy can the controler be? What is the installation situation like? How precise are the control tasks?
- Electrical components: which attachments, connections and installations are necessary? Is the joystick going to be used in an Atex/Ex environment? Should dead man’s function be integrated? Which output signal should be used?
