Partnership with the manufacturer 3Dconnexion

Megatron is exclusively marketing the SpaceMouse® Module for industrial OEM applications

Megatron has entered into a distribution partnership with 3Dconnexion GmbH and is exclusively marketing the SpaceMouse® Module in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with immediate effect. The installation components developed for industrial use enable intuitive and simple man-machine interaction, fulfilling the highest requirements in terms of multi-dimensional movement controllers.

“We are very pleased to expand our comprehensive range of joysticks with the SpaceMouse® Module,” says Marco Ahrens, Product Manager at Megatron. In the last 50 years, the Megatron product portfolio has consistently developed according to the requirements of the most diverse industrial applications. Today, the company’s sensors and joysticks bring high precision to thousands of applications. “We stand for robust, tried-and-tested technologies and products, as well as for innovations. The SpaceMouse® Module is just such an innovative control concept. Thanks to this unique solution, complex 3D control tasks can be handled intuitively and reliably.”

The SpaceMouse® Module combines the advantages of a joystick with those of a trackball. The core technology is based on the tried and tested 3D mice produced by 3Dconnexion, which are used by countless CAD professionals across the globe to great success. The modules will now be supplied as installation components for easy integration into stationary and mobile operation panels or arm rests. The basis for this is the patented sensor technology with six degrees of freedom. The SpaceMouse® Module takes on any control task in the industrial arena, from simple single-axle through to complex six-dimensional operations.

“With Megatron, we have found the perfect exclusive partner for our SpaceMouse® Module,” comments Bernhard von Prittwitz, Head of Business Development at 3Dconnexion. 3Dconnexion, with headquarters in Monaco, is the leading provider of 3D mice for 3D design and industrial 3D control modules. The central technology of the 3D modules is based on robotics and space research. In 1993, a 3D control was used in the Columbia space shuttle to operate the first robot arm in space. This was the starting shot for the development of the 3Dconnexion 3D Module. The patented visual measuring system guarantees optimum performance and precise control.
