Sure Grip Controls expands its miniature thumb controls product line

SAANICHTON — Sure Grip Controls, Inc. (Sure Grip) announces the expansion of its portfolio of miniature thumb controls. Complementing its current line of joysticks, handles, switches, control electronics and other components, Sure Grip has added SIL 2/PLd compatible versions of their miniature thumb controls.

The new redundant configurations increase Sure Grip’s already broad range of configuration options that include proportional, switched, momentary, maintained, and friction options. For manufacturers who must comply with IEC61508 or ISO13849 for safety, Sure Grip’s miniature thumb controls are now available in SIL 2/PLd compatible versions.

Sure Grip’s miniature thumb controls reportedly feature small and narrow designs that fit into more control applications.

“Our customers expect the highest quality from Sure Grip Controls and they can now have that quality with even greater functionality,” said Mark Vandersluis, Product Manager. “The new SIL 2/PLd compatible versions of our miniature thumb controls give manufacturers more options to solve their problems.”
