J.R. Merritt’s compact CS3 Bang/Bang joystick was designed to perform in a range of industrial applications that require durability in tight spaces, including bucket trucks, truck-mounted cranes, construction, agriculture, mining, forestry, and airport ground support equipment. The rugged, single-speed, on-off controller uses microswitches with quick connect terminals. Corrosion-resistant components, durable housing, and the center pivot design of the CS3 Bang/Bang joystick permit a life of 20 million mechanical cycles and enable the joystick to withstand harsh environments. Single and double axis control is available, as well as a variety of standard and custom handles and grips. Separate or simultaneous operation can be achieved with standard gate patterns, and the joystick is also offered with stacked microswitches, allowing two switches per direction.
