Frei develops modular, multi-function armrest


Frei has developed a new armrest that provides the vehicle operator high levels of flexibility.

The Brava has a modular design and controls are configurable – so suitable for a wide range of vehicle types. Due to its ergonomic layout, all controls can be operated with a natural movement of a finger.

Two different control units, the Actra Mono 300 and Actra Mono 400, are available, with both having a maximum of four single-axis joysticks. The 300 model has three standard thumb controls, while the 400 has two and a thumb joystick.

Pushbuttons, rocker switches, two-way and three-way switches are all present on standard controls and caps can be interchanged according to the operator’s personal preferences. Both control units, the horizontal adjustable arm support and the height adjustment unit are all elements of the product that can be adapted depending on the vehicle they are fitted to.

The use of non-contacting Hall-effect sensors guarantees a long service life. The controls remain extremely reliable, even under extreme loading conditions. Due to their encapsulated electronics and laser-etched symbols, the controls are ideal for use in harsh environments.
