Is there a proper/generic name for the switch–box/head on the end of the collective?  I am writing a proposal that talks about them in the general - variety form.  

Thanks in advance,
JD

Hi JD,

It is normally called the grip or collective stick grip.

Hope this helps

I've always known it as the collective head

Hi guys, the text below is copied straight from the Airbus H175B course notes.
Cheers

Collective grips
“TRIM” label: Collective trim release trigger.&#8232;• Press to declutch the collective trim actuator (trim release function).
“BEEP TRIM” label: 4 way switch.&#8232;• Controls the collective or yaw trim actuator motor, or changes the upper mode references (ALT, VS/FPA or CR.HT on longitudinal direction, HDG/TRK on lateral direction).
“GO AROUND” label: Go Around push-button:&#8232;• Press to engage/disengage the Go Around mode (and also engage ALT.A mode when an ALT.A reference is pre-selected).

I think the grip is the assembly ( the bit you grip and the head)

Some are a single piece and "grip" is a good description.

If the switch box can be removed from the grip - you now have a grip and a detached component (the head).
Once separate from the grip it can't still be the grip.

Thanks guys, I think that I have enough of a grip on this head terminology for what I need to write about :)

I found the manner in which the fine forensic analyses of the subject matter was presented gripping.

Cheers
