Our Product Scope

Applications where our products are used:

Sensors and Joystick Controllers for Maritime Applications | Image Vessel with Crane - 600

Sensors & Joysticks for the Marine Industry

Sensors & Joysticks for the Offshore Industry

The offshore industry requires explosion proofreliable and intrinsically safe (ATEX) sensors & HMI-products for harsh and hazardous environments. Our sensors and joysticks contribute to sustainable, safer and more cost-effective operations.

Application examples Offshore

Custom made handheld controller for the maritime industry

We developed a small size hand held control unit to replace a traditional marine portable control box.  Traditional control boxes can weigh up to 10 kg, which makes them less portable and user friendly. The tailor-made controller can control a vessel, winch, a ROV or an UAV.
