Otto announces new multi-function compact control grip


Illinois-based manufacturer Otto has announced the release of its G3-E Control Grip with five momentary pushbuttons and a proportional Hall effect rocker. Available in both left-handed and right-handed versions, the grip’s switches are sealed to IP68S standard and provide a high cycle life.

The G3-E acts a standalone grip, or can be mounted on a joystick. Mounting the G3-E on an Otto bottom mount JHM joystick is a standard offering available as a JHM-61 or a JHM-62 with a large variety of gating options. The left-handed and right-handed grips often work together within the same control seat

The G3-E Control Grip is great for forestry applications, and also works well in construction, off-road and other demanding applications where reliability is paramount.

Otto’s switches, joysticks and control grips perform every day in some of the toughest applications including heavy equipment, aerospace, marine, medical, communication and other demanding markets.
