Safeball

Innovative and ergonomic machine control

Safeball consists of a spherical ball containing two embedded pushbutton switches, one on each side of the ball. To be able to start and operate a machine both buttons must be activated. The risk of unintentional activation is thereby minimized and the device is simple and ergonomic to use. 

Safeball can be utilised for either one-hand or two-hand applications. For a two-hand control device the operator needs to have a Safeball for each hand to be able to operate a machine. If one or more pushbuttons are released a stop signal is given to the machine.
