The J.R. Merritt HFC-100 Armchair System Optimizes Operator Comfort for Maximum Productivity

The HFC-100 fixed armchair system is designed by J.R. Merritt to provide the ultimate in operator comfort. The standard seat of this system has a high backrest for the ideal amount of back and side support. The 80 degree backrest recline is adjustable in 2 degree increments, while the seat cushion tilt adjusts 3 degrees to 11 degrees in four increments to reduce thigh pressure. In addition, the seat cushion depth is adjustable forward 2.4" in five increments, accommodating larger operators. All of these ergonomic features enable the operator to work more productively for longer periods of time.

With tight cabins in mind, J.R. Merritt equips this chair system with 5" wide control consoles. Both the consoles and armrests are horizontally adjustable, and they flip back to facilitate operator access. Most of J.R. Merritt's 1-, 2- and 3-axis joysticks can be configured to fit comfortably inside the compact consoles. If needed, amplifier cards with PWM can be furnished with the joysticks to control most brands of electro-hydraulic proportional valves.
