The patented Ultra Touch (R) system had been designed as
a direct replacement for standard spring-loaded mechanical
palm buttons and is designed to fit into existing operator
palm button stations without modification. CSA and
The Ultra Touch enclosure is
molded, high-strength NEMA 4 polycarbonate module designed
to meet the high impact and vibration requirements of industry.
The circuitry of Ultra Touch
is also designed to provide second-order failure protection
providing an unparalleled level of safety and assurance
against inadvertant actuation or failing in the "on"
or conducting mode. The Ultra Touch is designed
so that two modules, when spaced and located properly in
accordance to OSHA and ANSI hand control distance formulas
(the same formula is used for mechanical palm buttons),
require the operator to accuate the switches concurrently.
Ultra Touch provides an unparalleled level of ergonomic
machine actuation while giving the operator the benefit
of using the correct ergonomic hand position of neutral,
0o deviation, and 100% hand power.
