Ergonomic game-style controller for remote-controlled applications
Apem’s PC Series is an ergonomic game style pendant controller is designed to accommodate APEM’s TS Series miniature proportional joystick and provides analog voltage or USB output. The PC Series is ideal for controlling unmanned vehicles, robotics and other remote controlled applications. APEM’s PC Series was modeled from consumer video game controllers and the design is intended to reduce the operator learning cycle and quickly increase efficiency and productivity. The PC Series is molded with high-impact, glass filled nylon and features a modular design to provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) the ability to configure the device as needed. Standard, off-the-shelf configurations can be specified with miniature Hall effect joysticks, snap-action pushbuttons, and USB interface. Future configuration options will include wireless communications as well as haptic feedback. The PC Series may be environmentally sealed up to IP67, making it suitable for harsh conditions. When configured with complementary components, the PC Series is buoyant, which makes it useful for marine watercraft applications.
