Company description by J. R. Merritt Controls, Inc.
J.R. Merritt provides innovative custom human interface solutions, including precision engineered joystick controllers and operator armchair systems, for a wide variety of applications. Founded in the mid-1980s, J.R. Merritt began by offering the metals industry a different type of joystick to replace the hard-to-operate high spring force joysticks then being used. These new rugged, low spring force joysticks were readily accepted due to their operator-friendliness and durability.

J.R. Merritt soon added seating and seating system solutions to our product line, and we were then able to offer a More... complete turnkey solution to the market. We continued to expand our market base, and today we also provide a full range of cost-effective joysticks, based on our same original design principles, to control machinery in the mobile equipment industry.

Our comprehensive line of multi-axis joysticks includes heavy mill duty, mill duty, heavy industrial and finger-operated models. The heavier duty joysticks provide reliable control in applications as varied as cranes, forestry equipment, in-plant process control, mining, offshore drilling, bucket trucks, boom lifts and aerial work platforms. The finger-operated joysticks are used for precise finger operation for test, measurement and guidance equipment and radio control systems.

Single axis controllers from J.R. Merritt are available for heavy mill duty, mill duty, industrial/hydraulic and finger-operated applications, as well as for operator-to-rail equipment interface. These drive/brake controllers are ideal for propulsion and brake control on locomotives, rapid transit, high-speed rail trains, trams, trolleys and people movers.

J.R. Merritt offers a complete line of armchair systems to meet the needs of diverse applications, from cab-operated cranes and process line pulpits to control rooms and mining shovels. The rotating operator armchairs are furnished with integrated consoles and numerous manual adjustments and some are specifically designed for tight cabins.

Complementary products such as rotary switches, foot pedals, enclosures and output devices round out the J.R. Merritt line. All are designed for long life and reliable operation. Less
