Long work hours, changing shift operation, heavy time pressure and extreme weather are some of the challenges for harbors and ships. They need solutions that they can count on one hundred percent of the time. We have designed our joysticks, control stations, and control station pillars specifically for these applications.
What sets us apart: We offer you integrated solutions from a single source that are adapted to your specific requirements.
We specialize in joysticks and control stations. Because ships and harbors pose very specific challenges for work and employees, we highly recommend some of our solutions.
Joysticks/switches for ships
All of our joysticks for the shipping sector (joysticks ST1, ST1 or NS0-SFA) are made of salt water resistant material. We also offer a wide variety of options with digital direction contacts, pushbutton in the handle, etc. You decide how the switch should look and which functions it has.
The lever throw can be chosen individually. On request, we can equip them with CAN, CANopen, PROFIBUS, PROFINET or PROFIsafe.
And of course, we also manufacture customized special solutions.
Operation of cranes in container harbors require endurance and precision. To enable comfortable and healthy work, we have equipped our control stations with a variety of adjustment options and excellent ergonomics.
Our comfort seats are recognizable by the effectively contoured backrest, optimal side support, and lamellar structure that offloads the spine. On request, we can also integrate a headrest, electric seat heater and operator presence switch. The memory function stores the individual settings of each worker.
The ideal seat is supplemented with footrests that rotate with the station, which we offer in different designs.
The side consoles can be variably tilted and swiveled with gas-spring support. As a result, the console cover has a slight inward slope in order to provide the best possible arm support. The angle of the armrests can be individually adjusted with optional length adjustment.
To ensure an unobstructed view, the comfort seat has a seat cushion cut-out. This gives a clear line of sight below. In the process, the tilt of the entire seat can be adjusted individually and it can be moved on a horizontal rail. In addition, the control stations can be equipped with electric or manual rotation.
All features are customizable; we adapt your control station to your special requirements.
On deck controllers
The housings of the on deck control station pillars are also made of salt water resistant cast aluminum alloy. We ensure that they operate reliably even under the harshest conditions and extreme temperatures. The generally have a high protection rating and can be equipped with components for use in explosion-prone areas.
If you order on deck control stations for inland waterway navigation to ocean navigation, we configure them according to your requirements. For special solutions in stainless steel you can also freely select the housing size and shape.
