Product description: SpaceMouse® Module

The optimized industrial module in a modern design for intuitive control of 6 degrees of freedom (6 DOF) by pushing, pulling, rotating and tilting the ergonomic handle.

The SpaceMouse® Module is the ideal human-machine interface for controlling 3D motion in industrial applications - with just one hand! It is the ideal input device for teaching robots, moving cameras, measurement systems, drones, etc. The module covers both rotational and translational movements thanks to its 6-axis sensor. The SpaceMouse® module can therefore replace two conventional joysticks in many applications, increasing the operator's control capabilities, saving space in control panels and reducing investment costs. Entirely new control concepts and control panels can be realized without the need for extensive operator training.
The industrial module features an optimized feel for industrial control applications, including higher spring tension, a smaller dead zone, a robust and durable handle material and a dustproof seal. Unaffected by ageing or static magnetic fields, the module operates reliably without wear on the internal mechanics. At the heart of the module is an optoelectronic sensor from 3Dconnexion that has been tried and tested in millions of 3D mice worldwide. The ergonomically optimized handle with 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) rounds off the product's attractive features.

  • Non-contact and wear-free sensor with optoelectronic detection
  • Low installation depth
  • Screw flange for easy installation
  • Can replace 2 conventional joysticks in many applications (6 degrees of freedom)
