Title: CONTROL DEVICE AND METHOD FOR OPERATING THE SAME
Abstract:
The invention relates to a control device (10, 10', 10") having a control lever (20) for controlling a vehicle, particularly for controlling a locomotive or a railway traction vehicle. According to the invention, the operating device comprises a control device (50) allowing a force-based operating mode, wherein a target force acting on the vehicle is adjusted by the operator by means of the control lever, and a speed-based operating mode, wherein the target speed of the vehicle is adjusted by the operator by means of the control lever, and a selector device (60) is connected to the control device, by means of which the force-based operating mode or the speed-based operating mode can be selected by the operator, and the control device generates an output control signal (ST) depending on the selected operating mode and the setting of the control lever, said signal indicating the control command of the control lever.
