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

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.

Comfort belly and neck belt

Ergonomically optimised abdominal and neck belt for safe working


The Nano-magna is the largest representative of our joystick transmitters. The particularly large housing offers space for the maximum number of operating elements such as up to 8 single-axis and 4 two-axis joysticks. In addition, toggle switches, rotary switches and buttons can also be integrated. Due to the multitude of possibilities and control elements, the Nano-magna is also suitable for extremely complex applications.

On request, the Nano-magna can be equipped with a 4.3″ LCD display – including integration of the customer-specific design. The high-resolution display shows the information that is necessary for you and the safety of your employees. Turn the Nano-magna into your wireless remote control and place your logo on the back of the display!

Thanks to the patented SMJ technology, the joysticks can be replaced by operators themselves during service. The exchange is so easy that no staff training or special tools are required! The housing remains closed throughout, so that no protective measures against contamination need to be taken. Thanks to this patented technology, the complete system is completely ready for use again with just a few simple steps.

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]
