The WC-Q+ cable control unit can house 8 linear joysticks and up to 3 multi-axis joysticks.
The data feedback function provides important information about the machine status on a customizable 2.8" TFT LCD color graphic display, through 32 signal LEDs, or on a 4.3" color display (CODESYS/Linux programmable). Up to 8 digital outputs, up to 8 proportional PWM outputs (4 axes, bi-directional), and up to 2 proportional voltage outputs are available. It features a serial port for field bus (CANopen), 4 digital inputs, and a removable power keyswitch.

Each cable control unit has a red stop button (STOP). With an appropriate cable connection, a stop button (rated current up to 2 A, 30 VDC) can be combined with machine safety circuits to be used as an emergency stop button (EMERGENCY STOP).
A “stop device” is defined as a manually commanded device that stops the machine in safe conditions, while an “emergency stop device” imposes an emergency stop, halting dangerous operations of a machine in an emergency. When a button fulfills an emergency stop function as well it is colored red with a yellow background. The choice of how this button is configured is based on the application requirements and a risk assessment of the machine.
