Data feedback

– Reach
– Transmitting signal strength
– Status of the machine function
– Customer-specific feedback information and logos on request

LBT frequency search

When switching on or switching to another frequency, the system checks whether the frequency channel used is occupied by other transmitters. If this is the case, the next frequency channel is checked until it is ensured that the transmitter can operate without interference. LBT is the abbreviation for ‘Listen before Talk’.

Design as cable desk

1. RF radio transmitter (optionally also with wired connection)
2. Cable console

For radio-critical work areas, the control unit can be supplied on request, not as a transmitter but as a cable console with the same functional equipment.

With its ergonomic shape and compact design, the HyPro-6 combines style and functionality. It was once designed specifically for hydraulic applications but over time the transmitter has become extremely popular beyond hydraulic applications.

For optimum display of your data feedback, the HyPro-6 features a monochrome display. Various feedback signals such as machine status, range or signal strength can be displayed on it at any time.

Thanks to the extraordinary design of the HyPro-6, there is room for 6 single-axis joysticks, with up to 4-stage detent on request. In addition, the integrated push buttons can be assigned various functions that are indispensable for your application.

For use in particularly harsh environments, the HyPro-6 can be protected with side-mounted protectors. These optimally absorb shocks and protect the radio remote control from penetrating dust and sand. Additional protection is provided by bellows joysticks that do not allow dirt to enter the HyPro-6.

Regardless of the type of joystick you choose for the HyPro-6, our patented SMJ technology allows you to replace a defective joystick yourself at any time with just a few simple steps. All you have to do is unscrew the old joystick and screw on the new one – and your system is completely ready for use again. When replacing the joystick, the housing remains closed so that no dust or dirt can get inside the transmitter. The joystick change is therefore possible at any time and in any place, no matter how dusty!



The SMJ joysticks are integrated in the housing with positive locking without housing openings. As joysticks are included as wear parts under certain conditions, NBB offers the option with its SMJ technology to be able to change a joystick on site. The housing does not have to be opened for this purpose so that no safety measures to prevent contamination must be taken. [More info]

Proximity Detection

Proximity Detection

The Radio Distance Guard detects within a radius of 6 metres when the operator approaches the machine. Depending on the zone he is in or the distance to the machine, the machine control is changed or stopped immediately in case of danger to the operator. [More info]


The teach-in function enables an optimized utilization of the joystick movement. By setting the min/max values on the transmitter side, the maximum move of the joystick is optimally utilized. As a result there are no longer any dead joystick motions. Even a minimum deflection of the joystick causes the immediate opening of a valve. [More info]


Multi-user system

The multi-user system enables radio communication between several transmitters and several receivers. Each transmitter can be optionally operated with several receivers at a workplace and / or vice versa. Provided that this connection is not otherwise used at this moment. [More info]

NBB battery system

NBB battery system

Nickel metal hydride batteries (NiMH) have a high energy density. The contacts have a self-cleaning design. The NBB battery pack is charged with a high charge current with a NBB charger. This quick charge is thermally controlled to optimize recharging and prevent overcharging. [More info]

LBT frequency search

LBT frequency search

When switching on or when switching the frequency, a check is carried out to determine whether the used frequency channel is reserved by another transmitter. If this is the case, the next frequency channel is checked until it is ensured that the transmitter can operate without disturbance. LBT is shortcut for Listen before Talk. [More info]

Data feedback

Data reporting

Visual representation of Operating Range, Transmission signal strength, Status of the machine function and Customer-specific information as well as logos supplemented by acoustic feedback (buzzer can be activated). [More info]


Inclination sensor

The built-in tilt sensor can detect when the transmitter exceeds a preset tilt value. This feature can help identify when an operator has fallen and can place a machine in a safe state. This inclination feature can also be programmed to initiate other actions such as an alarm. [More Info]
