The Merritt Synergy system from J.R. Merritt Controls, Inc. (Stratford, CT) is engineered for continuous use in a variety of machine and industrial cabin applications from cab-operated cranes and mining dredges to drills and maintenance-of-way equipment. The system features numerous adjustment capabilities to optimize comfort and reduce stressful seating positions for operators of all statures—from less than 5 ft (152 cm) tall to well over 6 ft (183 cm). High-resolution joysticks allow for more precise movement over a wider arc, helping the operator hit the target with less stress and fewer corrections. A variety of standard seat options, control console sizes and joystick styles allow for custom configurations with quick delivery. For more information, visit www.jrmerritt.com/
