Industrial / Hydraulic
Heavy-duty, 1 axis Cast Joystick with Valve Drive Board and Mechanical Interlock.

Valve Drive Boards are available to control 12 or 24 volt valves, direct or remote mounted.

The ultra-rugged PRO-5 also provides precise proportional control for AC/DC variable speed drives and industrial vehicles.

Your specific control requirements can be accommodated by a variety of standard and custom configurations.

NEMA 4 cast construction for use in wet and dirty environments.

Universal mounting holes.

This weatherproof design is ideal for use on Scissor Lifts, Work Platforms, Bucket trucks, Cranes, Agricultural, Mining and Forestry equipment where control of electro / hydraulic proportional valves or variable speed drives is desired.
