Machine builders ‘armed’ for action!

Midi modular armrest aims to deliver efficient working

elobau, a global manufacturer of non-contact sensor technology, level measurement and operator controls for industrial and off-highway machinery, has developed the 225MA midi, an armrest that gives access to customised modular control units to manufacturers of agricultural and construction machinery, as well as material handling and municipal vehicles.

“Thanks to its operating comfort and ergonomic design, it enables the machine operator to work in a targeted, healthy, and consistent manner,” says the company. “Vehicle manufacturers can quickly and easily configure application-specific operating systems from the modular system, without additional development and tool costs.”

Five modules

The multi-functional armrest consists of five modules, each of which can be individually designed: joysticks and hand throttle, operating unit, armrest, and storage compartment, hitchwheel and potentiometer, as well as the connection panel. From the compact joystick and multi-function handles, push buttons, encoders, power take-off buttons and fingertip joysticks to the hitchwheel, all the important operator controls and functions are available.

The operator controls are equipped with backlighting and are said to simplify work, even in poor visibility conditions. It also offers practical details, such as a USB interface in the storage compartment for charging mobile phones.

Plug-and-play safety tested system

“With the 225MA midi armrest, manufacturers of mobile machinery receive a fully configured, EoL-tested armrest that can be easily integrated into a vehicle as a plug-and-play solution. elobau also offers the individually configurable system in small quantities. Communication is via the CAN-bus protocol (SAE J1939 protocol) and AMP Junior Power Timer connections. The 225MA midi was developed in accordance with the EU 167/2013 (Mother Regulation) making it ideal for agricultural machines.

In addition, in any configuration, it corresponds to Agricultural Performance Level C (AgPL r c), which defines the safety level of the electronic control and operating units in agricultural machines in accordance with ISO 25119. It complies with protection class IP5K4, and is designed and tested for use in harsh environmental conditions.”

Rest assured

As sustainability plays a central role at elobau, the armrest has been developed with this in mind. In all, 75% of the plastics used are bio-based materials made from castor oil (instead of petroleum). The armrest itself is upholstered in organically produced apple leather. “Thanks to its modularity, it can be installed in different vehicle types, and individual modules can be easily replaced in the event of a repair or conversion. This saves resources, right up to warehousing.

"At the same time, the vehicle manufacturer can minimise development and adaptation costs, thanks to its simple integration into their vehicle and subsequent modification options. All elobau products are produced in a carbon-neutral manner.”

With the elobau 225MA midi armrest, manufacturers of mobile machinery receive a fully configured EoL-tested armrest that can be integrated into a vehicle as a plug-and-play solution.
