MCU W joystick deactivation

  • The operator can disable the joystick by switching the key to off and removing the key from the cradle - this prevents the CMM machine from unauthorised use
  • The key is only removable when it is in the OFF position, which is confirmed by a key symbol displayed on the MCU W screen
