Handles with a priority for ergonomics

What would a joystick or controller be without the right type of handle? Spohn & Burkhardt designs and produces optimized handles in small series (with rapid prototyping) and in large series (in injection molding processes).

Spohn’s handles are ergonomic, waterproof and can be equipped with special functions according to the customer’s requirements. Contact one of ELMA’s sales engineers to discuss your requirements. Together you will find the best fitting grip-solution for your joystick or controller!

Complex handles

On the one hand Spohn & Burkhardt offers more complex handles with individually selectable actuators. Users can chose between flat or protruding pushbuttons and a wide variety of toggle switches. Also thumb wheels or rotary wheels can be integrated into the handles (see UG series, G25 and G9 grips). Even buttons with LED or dead man's function are an option. If desired, a relieving hand support can be built on.

Simple versions

If you wish to opt for a simpler version, there is a vast choice of toned-down handles with or without buttons. Ball and T-handles, for instance, fit comfortably in your hand. Handles for mechanical locking are also an option.

Handles for mechanical locking

There are as many types of handles as there are sectors in which they are used. Spohn & Burkhardt handles are a reliable addition to joysticks, controllersportable control stations, on-deck control stations, pendants or operator seats. Whether the user wants a simple or complex design, a desired solution is always within reach. Spohn & Burkhardt attaches great importance to the shape of each handle and button. Ergonomic and user-friendly movement is a must at all times!

More possibilities for customization

Special handles can be equipped with mini-joysticks. Users are also able to select button colors and some additional functions, like a built-in vibration and buzz function. Spohn & Burkhardt also offers waterproof handles with high IP-values.

Usually Spohn & Burkhardt handles come in combination with other products. But, users that would like to retrofit or optimize their haptics and functions of installed-base control devices, can also approach one of the Elma Components sales engineers. We are able to advise you which handle is best fitting for your requirements.
