Curtiss-Wright HE

Ergonomically Designed Joystick Grip – Fits Comfortably In Either Hand.

The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles) HE series handle is a large handle for multiple functions. The top faceplate can be machined to most custom layouts. A new ergonomic look and angle designed for gloved hands to allow ease of use.

A maximum of 12 switches and an operator presence can be mounted in the handle with 6 switches in the top plate for thumb actuation, 2 front positioned for index finger actuation and 4 side buttons and a handle fitted for operator presence.

This grip can incorporate as many as fifteen functions including three analog controllers (rollers) in the front face and a ‘Person Present’ trigger switch and is available with a choice of three different switch types in six different colors as standard.

All switches are environmentally sealed to IP66 and the grip’s flow-in/flow-out design ensures there are no negative effects from water ingress.
