Multi-function grips by ALDERS and OTTO Controls – high-precision control technology

Our own control grips and those from our premium partner OTTO Controls function as the interface between the machine and the operator. Their job is to transfer the movements of the operator precisely to the machine in the most diverse areas such as aviation and in construction machines. That is why precision and high quality are so important for these products. The control grips by OTTO Controls and ALDERS have integrated pushbuttons, mini-joysticks, trim switches, thumbwheels or incremental encoders are multi-functional and all that both for digital and proportional signals. We can adapt each grip plate to your requirement profile, because we are aware that each application area demands other configurations. Due to the modular system the multi-function grips can be installed on already existing hydraulic or electric substructures. And if your machines do not already have the respective devices then we can provide complete solutions including electrical substructures or complete CAN-BUS systems. At ALDERS we also produce multi-function grips, for which we can provide numerous configuration options. This gives you the choice between different thumb plates for the various application areas. The multi-function grips permit two types of controls. So you have the choice between the standard orthogonal type, where you can only move the control grip along two axes. Or you choose the light orthogonal type that permits almost 360-degree movements.
