J.R. Merritt Controls, Inc. has introduced the MG9, MG9-4 and MG25 palm grips to their already expansive line of handle offerings. Operator feedback was taken into consideration during both the design and development of these handles to provide a product that meets the needs of industry users who operate overhead, container and gantry cranes, as well as mining dredges, draglines and shovels.
The MG9, MG9-4 and MG25 palm handles are made from ultra-tough Delrin for extreme durability. When these versatile grips are mounted on J.R. Merritt’s line of joysticks and master switches, such as the VNSO, XLVNSO, VCSO and CS1, the user can maneuver the joystick by placing the handle shaft in the space between the thumb and pointer finger – especially effective when used in conjunction with a console mounted wrist rest. These palm handles accommodate tactile, sealed, high-life and momentary pushbuttons, allowing for increased functionality in one controller.
