At the heart of the CM Rocket is a unique rocker switch that is ergonomically designed to reduce thumb strain and fatigue. The rocker switch gives the operator ultimate load control for micro-positioning applications, as well as increased safety and efficiency for hoist and machine operators. Its curved, well-balanced shape and ribbed grip help ensure the operator maintains a secure and comfortable hold.
The patented CM Rocket can be used for momentary operation of numerous types of industrial equipment, including hoists, conveyors, lift elevators and lift gates, mill drives, actuators and winches.
Well-balanced design fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, requiring minimal wrist flexion for operation to reduce operator fatigue and hand strain.
Unlike the competitors' smooth grip, the ribbed construction of the CM Rocket's grip provides a secure hold in all environments.
Rocker switch requires minimal thumb movement and push force, reducing strain on thumb and hand. It allows the operator to control hoists and other industrial equipment with precision control and accuracy. The wide shape of rocker switch ensures easy operation with or without gloves.
A rubber gasket seated under the rocker switch prevents environmental contaminants from entering the pendant.
Directional indicators feature raised, non-slip ridges for ease of use and secure thumb placement. Ridges will not wear quickly, like the competitors' labels or printed indicators.
