The newest member to join ABB's pilot device team has arrived: With a design made for heavy duty usage and simple assembly our joystick is available in 8 selector styles. Including both momentary, maintained, 2 and 4 positions. In addition, to prevent unintentional operation a separate style with latching function is included.
The Joystick is fully compatible with ABB's Modular range, the joystick is designed for simple assembly in either 22 mm or 30 mm (with adapter) mounting holes and uses the standard ABB contact blocks. The joystick is delivered with a 4-seat holder and up to 8 blocks can be mounted.
The mounting solution offers a low built in depth unique on the market. It's only 38.5 mm using the micro switch block and 48.5 mm using standard blocks. This is ideal for applications which are short of space e.g. wireless control stations.
Think about how easy it could be to affect the joystick unintentionally with e.g. a lose jacket. What could happened if a crane starts to move without control or a vehicle having moving parts while driving?
The ABB joystick is specifically designed to be suitable for heavy duty applications, and is resistant to the significant effects of shock, vibration, high and low temperatures and heavy wash down. Perfect for out door cranes, controls and naval applications.
As an evidence of this our Joystick complies with the extremely tough IP69K protection degree for intensive wash-down. In addition to this it's also tested and approved for shocks and vibrations according to IEC 60068-2-27 (100g at 6 ms) and IEC 60068-2-6 (10-500 Hz). These tests are set to ensure function in road, rail and cross country vehicles. It's actually even mentioned application such as space shuttles and super sonic aeroplanes. We have of course also performed a lot of tests internally to guarantee outstanding performance.
