Data feedback

– range
– Transmitter signal strength
– Status of the function
– Customized data feedback information and logos on request illustratable

LBT frequency search

When switching on or when switching the frequency, a check is made to determine whether the frequency channel used 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 faults.
LBT is short for Listen before Talk.

Design as cable console

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

Lateral protectors for even greater safety.


The HyPro-8 convinces with its ergonomic shape and compact design. Its robust housing offers space for 8 single-axis joysticks, which can be optionally 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-stage. Regardless of this, thanks to our patented SMJ technology, you can always replace a defective joystick yourself in just a few minutes. The housing remains closed so that no dust or dirt can get inside the transmitter. This makes changing the joystick is really easy at any time – so your system is quickly ready for use again!

You can use the HyPro-8 without any problems even in particularly harsh environments. The laterally mounted protectors protect the transmitter from impacts as well as from penetrating dust and sand.

Various data feedback messages can be displayed on the monochrome display of the HyPro-8. Everything is possible, from the status of the machine, to range and signal strength, to the feedback you specifically require.

The energy source with which the HyPro-8 is operated can be decided individually. Two AA battery cells and the 7.2V NBB battery system are available. The fast battery charge of only one hour is thermally regulated so that overheating can never occur. Despite the fast battery charging, the radio remote control is ready for 60 hours of operation.



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

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

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

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 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]
