Mobile Control Components

Mobile Machinery Control Equipment

As a builder of on-road or off-road mobile machinery, you have a lot of options and choices for control components and equipment. The selection of these components can be a challenge. Some of the things that need to be considered are environmental requirements, programming language (if any), device communication, HMI needs, and even budget.

This can make getting replacement parts or updating systems seem a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be. With the right mobile machinery control company, you can get the equipment you need when you need it.

Take a look at our article Benefits of Control Systems on Mobile Machinery to learn more about what is possible from a control perspective. Based on your requirements and project goals, that will help determine the best control components to utilize. Cross offers a range of mobile control components that can save you downtime and maintenance costs.

Making Your System Work For You

Often, we see manufacturers working more for their systems than their systems working for them. When you’re working with mobile work equipment, it’s important to have the right components to manage things like heat dissipation, performance analytics, and maintenance needs.

It’s also crucial that your machine behave in the way you expect it to. That’s why it’s so important to have the right HMIs, sensors, controllers, and other components. Having full control over your mobile equipment and devices
translates to better performance over time. Which is better for everyone’s bottom line.

If you’re interested in making your mobile equipment work for you, we’d love to hear from you. Contact one of our experts today for a consultation.

Our mobile-rated controller technology has some of the best value for mobile machinery OEMs. These durable and rugged controllers are able to withstand many environmental conditions, water, and machine vibrations. They also allow for flexibility in programming and CAN-based communication.


HMIs and displays can provide invaluable troubleshooting information and be used to operate the machine as a whole. With something so important, it’s crucial that it be intuitive and operator-friendly. From size to channel options to data collection/reporting capabilities, Cross can get you the HMI or machine display you need.

HMI and Display→

When you’re controlling thousands of pounds of valuable machinery, it’s important that the mechanism controlling it be efficient and intuitive. From backhoes to earth-movers, electronic joysticks are often an integral part of mobile machinery control systems. Make sure you get the right electronic joystick for your mobile machinery application.

Finding the right level of vision and collision avoidance necessary can be a balancing act. In many situations, an analog camera may be all that’s needed. Some applications may require a more sophisticated collision detection method. To find the right level of autonomy for your mobile machine, contact Cross Mobile Systems Integration group.

Vision and Collision Avoidance→

Mobile machinery sensors are indispensable components of many machines. They can provide feedback about machine functionality and ensure that a machine is operating within designed specifications. They can also be a part of collision avoidance and equipment monitoring. Get the sensors you need from Cross today.


Radio Remote Controls have proven to be one of the safest and most effective methods of controlling mobile machines, both on and off-highway. But safety isn’t the only perk of utilizing these systems. Productivity for manufacturers can also increase with a well-integrated radio remote control system.

The Importance of Control Components

The right control components for mobile machinery are critical to long-term successful operations. An HMI or display that’s convoluted or unintuitive can lead to operator error or unnecessarily long service times. Likewise, poor collision avoidance can lead to unplanned work stoppage or unscheduled vehicle maintenance.

At the Mobile Systems Integration group, these are things we want to avoid. Our goal is for your system to be intuitive, efficient, and scalable. When those three factors are brought together, you get a strong mobile machine that end-users want to operate.

That’s where having high-quality, reputable mobile machinery control components comes in. With the right controls, your mobile machine can operate as intended and as planned.

The Right Components for Your Machine

The needs of every mobile machine are not the same. An industrial mining rig has different needs than a municipal machine. That’s something we understand. So we take a unique approach to every mobile machine we see. We learn the ins and outs of the design as well as the functionality expected of it.

When you understand the functionality and expectations of a mobile machine, you can find the best components. That way the machine is able to best perform what’s expected of it with minimal downtime and maintenance.

At Cross, we know mobile machinery. And we can find the right combination of components for your machine to optimize performance, cut costs, and extend operational lifespans.

Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to mobile machinery, there’s not frequently a one-size-fits-all solution. Different machines have different space allocation, heat dissipation, and hydraulic/electric systems. We take the time to learn your system and offer a solution that works for both your machine and your bottom line.

There’s a difference between working for your machine and your machine working for you. If you’re regularly having unscheduled maintenance (or worse, unexpected downtime) or having to provide excess training to operators, it may be time for a change. We can overhaul and optimize your mobile system so it works for you.

Many work trucks and mobile machines can benefit from an upgraded mobile control system. We’ve seen huge benefits in mobile control components for construction vehicles, mobile control components for recycling, and mobile control components for utility vehicles.
