Multifunction Hand Grips For More Complex Control Systems in Off-Highway Applications, Momentary Button Action, Maximum of 8 Switches.

The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles),  ‘A’ Range Handle Options meet the demands for more complex control systems in the off-highway application. The “A” range of ergonomic hand grips can be fitted with a combination of analog outputs, push-button, and deadman’s switches.

This option is designed to meet the demands for more complex control systems in off-highway applications. The ‘A’ range of ergonomic multifunction hand grips can be fitted with a combination of analog outputs, push-button and ‘Person Present’ switches.

The handle can be supplied with two independent analog outputs generated by proportional rockers which, in turn, provide auxiliary directional switching in addition to the potentiometric output. When coupled with the Curtiss-Wright JC150 joystick, this unit can provide a three-axis control device.
