      Cockpit and switch output determined by grip position

      Multi-screen function, control of the screen can be determined by grip rotational position

      Position and Rate Slewing are software configurable

Capabilities 

      Two Hall effect joysticks with separate Z-axis push buttons

      Host Computer Interface Support: ARINC 429, RS422, USB, Ethernet, CANBUS

SOCOMCCD

Spec Ops Cursor Control Device (SOCOMCCD)

A unique military HMI CCD design originally developed for SOCOM allows control of multiple slewing functions. This CCD has ergonomic features that allow individualized adjustment for pilot comfort.  The adjustability adds to the number of platforms that the CCD can be used in without modification.  The grip portion utilizes elements derived from HOTAS-style grips and is featured in the B-1, CH-47, UH-60, CH-53, multiple FLIR, and weapons configurations.

Differentiators

      Left-hand or right-hand design

      Individual ergonomic pilot preference grip adjustment positions

      Multiple switch configurations

Capabilities 

      Two 4-way toggles, one 2-way toggle, one joystick with push, two push buttons one scroll wheel and two axis grip adjustment

      Interfaces Supported: ARINC 429, RS422, RS485, USB, Ethernet, CANBUS

More Information

CCDs from Mason Control's are multifunctional controllers engineered for ease of use and rugged performance in aviation and ground applications.

Like our HaWC controllers, our Tracducer and armrest CCDs are comfortable to operate, balanced, and ergonomically designed as the clear choice for control in the field. 

Our Tracducer CCD offers superior slew control for fast-slew, high-click usage in high-vibration environments — such as helicopters — as well as rotational adjustability for operator comfort. Right and left-hand units are available.
