Orby Switch for Augmentative Communication
Orby is a colourful button-style adaptive switch featuring a smooth contoured design that is 6.4cm (2.5-inches) in diameter and less than 2.5cm tall. It utilises the industry standard 3.5-mm headphone jack attached to a 1.5m cable. A simple press anywhere on the top will provide a switch closure with pleasing audible feedback.
Orby is a perfect access switch for emulating alternative mouse buttons, for scanning Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) Devices, for accessing Environmental Control Systems, interacting with simple toys, or controlling any other device that can be navigated with one or more switches.
The Orby switch features integral dampers to reduce spurious sounds during actuation; while providing clear and audible feedback of the switch acutation event. Orby uses a tough industrial switch designed for high voltage, and current. (The industrial switch meets many approved standards from UL, CSA, VDE and TUV; however, Orby is not rated by these agencies and is NOT designed for switching high voltage and high current.)
The industrial switch mechanism is rated for 30-million operations at 60 operations per minute. Orby uses a cable designed for a high flex environment that employs a strong PVC jacket and high strand count wire for severe duty.
Orby has two #6-32 threaded inserts molded into the base for situations that require fixed mounting. The inserts are separated by 1.1-inches (28-mm) and centered on the switch body. The included friction pad is held in place with a pressure sensitive adhesive. It is shipped loose with Orby.
