Danfoss Power Solutions has launched its portfolio of high-performance hydraulic remote controls. Designed to withstand extreme and harsh environments, the Danfoss DHRC line includes the DHRCJ joystick, DHRCP foot pedal, and DHRCD sectional valve. The controls are ideal for excavators, skid steer loaders, backhoe loaders, wheel loaders, forklifts, truck cranes, aerial work platforms, telehandlers and drilling machinery.

With low leakage and hysteresis plus good linearity, the DHRC line delivers precise and repeatable operation for superior machine controllability. The joystick valve’s body and spool provide smooth and sensitive operation while minimizing internal leakage.

Flexible, customizable designs enable OEMs to tailor the controls to the application. DHRCJ joystick options include seven switch boxes, four grips, four boots, and four bodies. The DHRCP pedal is available in seven styles, including single and double pedals, with five bellows and seven body options. The DHRCD sectional valve offers 11 lever and bar designs, four boots, and six body options.

The joystick features an ergonomically designed handle with a comfortable hand rest. Its grip can be configured with a comprehensive set of finger functions, enabling true personalization based on individual preferences and operational requirements. The joystick’s valve is protected from dust by outer and inner boots. It features a strong rod seal that provides long life and low friction sealing. The DHRCJ joystick switch box is rated to IP68, while the proportional switch is rated to IP69K, offering high levels of ingress protection.


The joystick and double pedal have a rated flow of 20 L/min, while the sectional valve has a rated flow of 10 L/min. Various output pressure and operating torque options are available, and consistent performance is guaranteed over a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 60°C.
