A QUADCO® friction lever control differs from conventional
levers in that its friction plate bears on a two-inch radius
arc rather than merely squeezing a small washer-pad at
the pivot. (A hardened steel ball rolls on the opposite side
of the arc to equalize the friction drag.) This design offers
several advantages, including more "repeatable" drag, finer
adjustment, and more resistance to side loads.
The C72 Series Control is available as a complete assembly
or, by starting with the Basic Friction Unit, specialised
configurations may be created using standard input and
output levers, cable hardware and mounting kits.
