Master controllers and joysticks for rail and industrial applications
We design and manufacture high-quality master controllers and joysticks for rail and industrial applications. Ergonomics, design, increased effectiveness and, last but not least, the highest quality are the principles for all our products.
Custom master controllers and joysticks
Customer-specific solutions for your machines are our strength. We have the capability to design a bespoke master controller or joystick to suit your exact requirements.
The S 22 single-axis controller is a rugged switching device that meets IEC 947-5-1, EN 60947, DIN and VDE 0660-200 standards for electro-hydraulic and rail applications.
Modular single-axis controllers
The modular design of this single-axis controller allows it to be used for a variety of applications including on railways. The S 22 is resistant to oil, harsh maritime climates, ozone and UV radiation.
The mechanical life of the S 22 is six million operating cycles, and the operating temperature range is -40°C to +60°C (storage -50°C to +80°C). Climatic resistance, damp heat constant according to DIN IEC 68 part 2-3, damp heat cyclic according to DIN IEC 68 part 2-30, and IP 54, IEC 529 and DIN 40050 protection are among its other features.
