VEHICLE SOLUTIONS

THE DETAILS DRIVE US FORWARD.

WE SPECIALIZE IN USER INTERFACE DEVICES THAT COMMUNICATE VIA CAN BUS (J1939 AND CANOPEN PROTOCOL) TO CONTROL ONBOARD SYSTEMS.

Grayhill takes a proactive approach to help identify job specifications. Our engineers look beyond basic functionality to improve operator efficiency and ergonomics. This approach yields more intuitive controls that reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. They optimize product design to simplify installation into the vehicle cab, reducing the original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) assembly time. Further, these custom products are programmed for easy integration with the vehicle's onboard control unit.

We offer a standard range of keypads, joystick/encoders, and displays as base products ready for quick, cost-effective customization. These products simplify mechanical installation into the vehicle cab and electrical integration with the vehicle's control units.

VEHICLE SOLUTIONS CUSTOM APPLICATIONS

For an equipment operator, the feel of a knob speaks about the whole experience. This quality lets the end-user know what to expect under the hood.

  • EXCAVATOR ARMREST CONTROLS

  • COMPLETE ARMREST ASSEMBLY

  • PAVER CONTROL CONSOLE

  • ARMREST-MOUNTED CONTROL ASSEMBLY

  • SUB-ASSEMBLY USED IN AGRICULTURE EQUIPMENT

EXCAVATOR ARMREST CONTROLS

The switch modules utilize Grayhill's electrical and firmware in a sealed module without cracks and crevices. Custom 62VG Value Rotary Encoders, 62HS High Torque Haptic Rotary Encoders, and 68A Machine Rotary Encoders are integrated into these switch modules.

Products used for this solution:

COMPLETE ARMREST ASSEMBLY

In this complete armrest solution, Grayhill designed the mechanical layout to optimize ergonomics for the operator, molded the plastic housing and sub-assemblies, populated the internal boards, created custom keypads and encoders (62N Premium Haptic Rotary Encoder, 68P Hall-Effect Encoder, 62AG Value Rotary Encoder), and integrated all the components.

Products used for this solution:

PAVER CONTROL CONSOLE

Grayhill designed and provided this console's molded plastic enclosure, firmware, and internal electronics. The control modules include rugged, white LED backlit momentary pushbuttons, optical encoders, and analog rocker switches. The IP66-rated surface withstands pressure washing and harsh cleaning chemicals to remove asphalt residue.

Products used for this solution:

ARMREST-MOUNTED CONTROL ASSEMBLY

This armrest includes an ergonomically optimized layout of keypad modules and rotary switches, which are used for display navigation. The rugged die-cast aluminum housing and molded plastic cover help the system survive UV and chemical exposure, dust, and water ingress. Grayhill's 25L Mechanical Encoder and 62AG Value Rotary Encoder were also integrated into the assembly.

Products used for this solution:

SUB-ASSEMBLY USED IN AGRICULTURE EQUIPMENT

Grayhill custom-designed the molded plastic housing, firmware, and electronics for this control panel and module. The display offers custom firmware that allows the operator to see tractor diagnostic and operational information.
