The VertiMax Articulating Pendant Arm
VertiMax is Strongarm’s largest and most powerful member of the industry-leading Vertica family of adjustable pendant arms. Specifically designed for the increased load demands of larger operator interface and control systems, the VertiMax provides counterbalanced adjustability for systems weighing up to 250 pounds.
Featuring a 2.5” diameter internal sealed cable passageway, the VertiMax design protects larger cable bundles from dirt, dust and repeated washdowns, keeping them secure and twist-free. Strongarm’s VertiMax Pendant Arm allows the operator to adjust the interface to a comfortable height. The operator simply squeezes the grab handle and the interface becomes weightless and easily repositioned. The gas spring counterbalancing system automatically locks in place, providing safety and stability.
