Can’t find our product catalogue? Here’s why

‘Why don’t you have a product catalogue?’ is a question that has been posed by our customers on more than one occasion in recent weeks.

It’s a valid query, why don’t we have such a comprehensive document to hand? It’s not because we’ve deliberately steered away from having one, it’s because it’s simply not physically possible to produce such a vast document. This is due to the fact that the list of possible product variations we provide is immense and rapidly growing by the day.

While most of our hand controller solutions involve our modular range as the starting point, the vast majority do include some custom content at some point in their life due to:

  • The unique nature of their application or demanding environment or;
  • End user choice (in our experience nearly everybody can, and will, have an opinion on the configuration of their controller).

Custom content - in reality

We offer 5 sub-miniature force joystick (thumb transducer) knob options in our modular range. However, we have actually now engineered and delivered 51 different knob styles, a figure we are sure we will continue to add to over the coming years.

Here’s another clear example. We offer 6 rugged switch options (push buttons, toggles and trims) within our modular grip range. We have so far incorporated a staggering 194 different switch types into one of more of our hand controllers.

To assist with our speed and service, we currently hold strategic stock of 123 for both new build and on-going supply purposes. If we didn’t take this approach, then these are exactly the type of longer lead-time items that would otherwise take months rather than weeks or days for us to deliver on.

If you, or your end customer, have visited our site and haven’t been able to find exactly what you are looking for, it doesn’t mean it’s beyond our realm of capabilities.

Call us on +44 (0) 118 981 7311 and we will be more than happy to see if we already have a suitable off-the-engineering shelf solution to hand. If not, we will let you know how soon we can come up with a solution for you. Either way, we can guarantee you won’t have to wait long for an answer.
