The medium-sized Cobra joysticks of the 871 series were specially developed for multi-axis control of machines in demanding applications, where the highest requirements on quality and feel have to be met at the same time. The design is compact and therefore offers advantages in limited space where many operating functions are required.
The joystick's design for the application can be individualized through specific functional configurations with mini-joysticks, rockers, operator presence paddle, as well as buttons above and below the joystick head. This way, customized handles with up to 3 rockers can be realized, so that the joystick can be equipped with up to 5 axes/degrees of freedom. The ergonomic design of the Cobra knob ensures fatigue-free operation and the accessibility of the additional functions.
Thanks to the non-contact Hall effect technology, the joysticks are extremely reliable and safe to use even under the toughest conditions. The buttons and rockers of the control knob are wired separately. They can therefore be operated at higher voltage levels and loads compared to the Hall sensors of the base electronics.
