1Industrial Joystick Controllers The Spohn + Burkhardt joystick controller products are primarily sold in heavy industries such as:aluminium smelterssteel millsconstructionmining
2Industrial joystick controllers provide control switching for various applications such as: Ports and harboursShip loadersStackersReclaimersGantry cranesShovelsDrag lines

4Steps - The notches or “steps” felt when moving the joystick in any particular direction. The “steps” of a joystick are often represented via the following numbering method. The zero “0” represents the center position of the joystick, and the numbers on either side represent the number of steps available in the joysticks travel.E.g: would represent 1 step away from center in each direction.7-0-7 would represent 7 steps away from center in each direction.
5Stepless - Refers to a contact arrangement that has no notching during its travel. A stepless arraignment is usually used in conjunction with potentiometers and encoders to allow for a smooth , linear operation.Travel - Refers to the total movement of a joystick in a given direction. A full length travel would be defined as the movement of a particular joystick from its center position, to the limit of its movement in given direction. The full travel of a joystick is independent from the number of steps a joystick may posses.Motion: A one motion joystick is a joystick with one axis, that being either up-down or left-right. A two motion joystick has both axis
6Contact Block - A contact block is the block in which the electrical contacts are housed. Each contact block contains two sets of contacts.Contact System - Is a completed contact arrangement, the arrangement may consist of one or more sets of contacts blocks, cams and mounted accessories.Drive Arrangement - The position in which the contact system is mounted.E.g: On one of the four sides, or a combination of sides or even on the base.
7Orientation - The co-ordinate system used to distinguish one direction of travel from another. There are two common orientation designations currently being used.E.g:ANCDWEBS

15Portable controller stations The Spohn + Burkhardt consoles provide a variety of options for mounting their range of joystick controllers. They also provide practical and ergonomic design to allow for the ease of use.Included in the range is the breast plate type of enclosure which allows operation of the controllers without straining their back.FeaturesCan accommodate most joysticksAccepts pushbuttons and indicatorsErgonomically designed for comfortDouble insulated
16Operator chairs and consoles Most operator consoles are not the same. Variations to the standard console design are required in most applications.The most common change to console is the type of chair that goes in it.Console top width is dependant on control equipment installed. Larger controller such as type VNSO may require the FSSMD console as seen here.Spohn & Burkhardt provide detailed drawings which we use to establish which product is best suited to the application.
