Glendinning Upgrades Top Mount Controls


Glendinning Products of South Carolina has launched an upgraded line of waterproof top mount controls.

The company’s original CH2001 design control head has been upgraded in models CH2001 ProGrade and CH2001 ProGradeXD, with new internal components such as dual-channel, non-contact position sensors.

WIth a full IP68 waterproof rating, the upgraded Prograde line is suitable for applications where the control head may be completely underwater, and can be used in new or retrofit Glendinning control systems of all propulsion types — inboard, outboard, sterndrive and waterjet.

The CH2001 ProgradeXD model features a stainless-steel touch keypad designed for rough handling, as in some commercial applications.
