A contoured front panel means the rollers are within an easy sweep of an operator’s thumb, while the switch arrays are angled to allow for similarly convenient actuation.

The controls on the rear panel are situated to provide comfortable operation with a first finger. To further enhance operator comfort, both handed options are oriented to lean forward and inwards.
For maximum, application-specific flexibility, each roller and switch is offered in nine color options. Further customization is possible by a choice of 16 logos which can be printed in each of the switches.

In addition to being supplied fitted to a JC6000 or JC8000 joystick, the HI Grip can be supplied as a stand-alone product with an industry-standard, threaded mount and flying leads.

Careful material selection ensures maximum robustness to impact, liquids and dust, with the enclosure being sealed to IP67. An EMC performance level of 150V/m is provided and the overall design achieves an MTTFD in excess of 900 years.
