Posted by Irina Tabakina

Bokam Engineering, Inc., offers a new line of snap-action and place-and-hold single-axis winch and throttle controls.  It is designed to provide lateral single-axis controls for a wide range of applications including top side winch, lift and throttle control functions in marine environment-exposed applications.   According to the developer, the new line combines the reliability and survivability of the solid state sensor products with a life cycle expectancy of 10 billion life cycles, featuring Bokam’s patented rotational motion mechanism and programmable modular microprocessor based electronics.  The modular controls come in a wide range of outputs and meet the requirements of practically any control system.  With various modular interface handles the building block configuration can be built to meet the interface and mechanical needs of various installations and human factors requirements.   Various mounting interface and enclosure packages are available with configurations range from IP56 to IP66 (survivability in heavy seas) and IP69K (survivability during/after high pressure, high temperature wash-down) configurations found in marine applications.
