Hydraulic joystick is an input device consisting of a stick that pivots on a base and reports its angle or direction and many other informations to the hydraulic system it is controlling. Hydraulic joystick, also known as the control column, is the principal control device in the cabin of many construction machines.
We live in beautiful times when we are abble to work from very comfortable pilot cabin and do the work no one were dreaming about back in the days. New machines are stronger and more precise than ever before and we can control them by a gentle touch of out hands and sometimes even fingers.
Every machine need something responsible to control it. Especially hydraulic systems. You can control hydraulic systems with electric joysticks. Some types allows to be used even remotely in a lot of new models. You can control hydraulic systems by manual joysticks as well. You can almost always find manual joysticks in hydraulic systems next to the the valve in the old types machines.
In some models you can lock the hydraulic joystick in one position if it’s needed that way or chose an option ‘return to 0 point’ and the system of the joystick will comeback to neutral position when there’s no move detected.
The massive rapid growth of every electronic controls on all types of mobile equipment in hydraulic systems is changing customer expectations and level of many innovations everyday. Adaptive solutions to problems with "old technologies" are rapidly appearing day by day.
However, using remotely joysticks does not affect the fact about installing manual “start / stop” buttons in every hydraulic system in case of a threat or a demanding situation. Safety above everything!
