The 1080HD series Handlebar Controls provide off-the-shelf, SAE spec-qualified handlebar controls that provide a greater number of functions per package volume and are easily configured in different ways. Withlittle up-front investment for the OEM, Honeywell's platform approach creates a customized right or left-hand control in a cost-efficient, qualified handlebar control to support short OEM product design cycles.The series offers enhanced safety through an optional runaway prevention switch, and through a smaller form factor that enables easier user access to critical vehicle functions. To meet additional requirements for design flexibility and aesthetic differentiation, the manufacturer developed three patent-pending designs that can be applied to the new handlebar controls. Common components and inserted tooling reduce tooling investment and minimize procurement complexity while also improving manufacturability. The product's smaller size and easy configurability increases OEM design flexibility in both functions and in attachment and accessory options.
