New handle for material handling equipment joysticks
Penny & Giles, a business group of Curtiss-Wright Controls and designer and manufacturer of joystick controllers, has introduced a new multifunctional handle/grip for its JC8000, JC6000 and JC1500 ranges of joystick.
The new HE multifunctional handle/grip, which is also available to users and OEMs wishing to fit it to mechanical levers, can incorporate as many as 15 functions including three analogue thumbwheel controllers in the front face and a person-present switch to the main grip.
It is available with a choice of three different switch types as standard and six different switch button colours. All switches are environmentally-sealed to IP66 and the handle’s flow-in/flow-out design ensures there are no negative effects from water ingress.
