Industrial / Hydraulic
The ultra-rugged PRO-6 provides precise proportional control for electro-hydraulic valves and AC/DC variable speed drives.

It features smooth, field-adjustable friction brake with positive center detent for applications where speed must remain constant under continuous shock and vibration. Unit is designed for mechanical operating life of 20 million cycles and offers universal mounting capability and various electronic amplifiers to accommodate control requirements.

Your specific control requirements can be accommodated by a variety of standard and custom engineered electronic amplifiers.

For use on Cranes, Agricultural, Mining, Paving and Forestry equipment.
