WITTENSTEIN has perfected its control loading products to provide realistic force feedback for the telerobotics market. Utilizing compact design and unique electronic linking, sidestick systems from WITTENSTEIN offer revolutionary reliability and realism for operators.
WITTENSTEIN Aerospace & Simulation has been the control loading leader in the flight simulation market for more than a decade. The Company has taken its expertise and applied it to telerobotics, where a user controls an axis or entire vehicle remotely. WITTENSTEIN’s products provide the user with feedback of the remote axis through electrical linking and force control technology.
The main features of the sidestick systems for telerobotics are superior efficiency, compact design, and electric linking with force feedback. These result in smooth operator feel, no need for additional mechanical linkages or hydraulics, and a standard off-the-shelf system solution that utilizes standard wall-outlet power. The robust nature of the WITTENSTEIN systems allow for up to 10 axes per control module.
Sample areas of application for this technology include remote product testing for reasons due to environmental or equipment restrictions.
