Sauer-Danfoss Expands Its Line of Joysticks, Offering More Options for Machine Control

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, USA; SAUER-DANFOSS INC. (NYSE: SHS; FSE: SAR) Sauer-Danfoss is announcing a newly expanded line of joysticks to meet a wider range of mobile machine requirements. The larger joystick family offers a broader range of interchangeable base and grip options. The expanded line provides choices from mini-rollers and mini-rockers for light-duty machines and chest packs to standard, heavy-duty and custom designed base and grip solutions for more demanding applications. The ability to interchange base and grip options provides great flexibility and a mix and match environment for equipment design engineers who need to overcome current compatibility constraints. The joysticks are also PLUS 1(TM) compliant for easy integration into Sauer-Danfoss systems.

To facilitate the expansion of the range and functionality of its line of joysticks, Sauer-Danfoss has entered into an exclusive agreement with Penny & Giles, a global leader in joystick design and manufacturing.

This expanded line, together with the PLUS 1 system, now opens up a new, more flexible world for machine design engineers to work in. They will be able to create machine control interfaces that differentiate their machines and make operation and maintenance easier for owners and operators."
