Strongarm MiniStation Operator Interface System

MINISTATION™

The first height-adjustable operator interface and HMI system, the MiniStation, has been refined over time and continues to be the market-leading ergonomic operator interface system.

The counterbalanced vertical motion allows the operator to effortlessly lift, lower, and reposition the HMI using one hand by pulling on the release handle. When released, the arm automatically locks in the vertical position. NEMA Type 4 and 12 units are constructed from powder-coated steel and cast aluminum, and NEMA Type 4X units are fabricated from 304 or 316L stainless steel. Like all Strongarm products, the MiniStation is “engineered to order,” allowing us to design each system to meet your specific requirements.

Choose from a large selection of premium Strongarm-built industrial displays accompanied by industry-proven keyboards and input devices.

Strongarm can install and integrate all user-supplied components into your system, or we can procure, integrate, and wire any specified components before shipment, providing a 100% turnkey installation-ready system.
