Danfoss’ New Joysticks
By Mike Brezonick16 February 2016
Danfoss Power Solutions is launching its new JS1 platform of joysticks, led by the release of the JS1-H family designed for heavy-duty applications. Following the release of the JS1-H family, Danfoss said additional offerings within the new JS1 platform will be introduced in the coming year.
The JS1-H family of joysticks are designed for use in heavy-duty mobile machinery such as wheel loaders, dozers, dumpers, trenchers and haulers in the construction market, as well as pavers, graders, rollers and milling machines in road-building.
The joysticks can be customized for application needs in several ways, including the ability to select from of three base options — single axis with spring return or friction hold and dual axis with spring return. There are also five ergonomically tested grip-type options. Additionally, push buttons, rollers and other controls on each can be custom-positioned.
All of JS1-H grip options are compatible with all base options, making upgrading as simple as swapping in a new component. Plus, there will be six standard electrical interfaces available.
