Compact control unit with integrated auxiliary functions.
After the great success of the particularly ergonomic ProControl joysticks, Stoll is now offering a whole new joystick generation with the ProControl II.
The tried and tested ergonomic grip with the five buttons remains the same, but this new model has upgraded to a new control system and a new plastic housing, which is much more compact and is fitted with simpler mounting options in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. All the additional optional ancillary and operating functions are combined in an integrated keypad on the control lever. The driver controls the additional features, such as Comfort Drive, locking the tool, on-off switches for road driving, switch for 3rd control circuit for quick emptying, at the convenient touch of a button.
The new membrane keypad assembly not only requires less space for installation, but also reduces the effort needed to install it since all the buttons are already installed. The communication of the button is ensured via the integrated bus system. This means that with the ProControl II joystick the driver has the front loader safely under control for loader work. The ProControl II joystick is suitable for all front loaders with an EcoPro system and can also be supplied as a retrofit for the tractor's control unit. Its position in the tractor is arbitrary and depends entirely on the needs of the driver.
