Familiar handheld controller that is tethered to the machine by an articulated arm. With its larger, tactile, sealed keypad, this controller is ideal for operators who use gloves to load and unload specimens and prefer a push-button keypad. The controller can be used for basic operation of the tester and can initiate a test, but must be used with Horizon software.


Two models of this tethered controller are available: one designed for the operation with ST series testers, and one designed for operation with SL series testers.

Features & Benefits

  • SL model has five more buttons than the ST model, which are used for opening and closing hydraulic actuated lever pocket wedge grips, and for moving the motorized crosshead on hydraulic machines
  • Interface is surrounded by silicone rubber guard to prevent damage
  • Keys made from robust elastomeric epoxy and safe in all kinds of environments
  • Keypad surface provides superior splash resistance, which reduces curling and peeling and makes it ideal for all kinds of operating environments.



Specifications apply to both SL Series Handheld User Interfaces and ST Series Handheld User Interfaces, except where indicated
