The perfect match for power and precision

The perfect match for power and precision

Designing and building machines today requires an accurate selection of components that meet customer demands for reliability, performance efficiency and long-term value.

By pairing the Danfoss PLUS+1® JS1-H joystick with D1P pumps and the PVG proportional load sensing control valves, OEMs can optimize high flow work function performance and help customers build the most productive machines for their customers with reduced commissioning time. 

Features and benefits

Plug-and-play: The joysticks and pumps are delivered from the factory with pre-programmed control applications designed specifically for use with the D1P pump saving time and cost to commission

Simple set up: No controller, laptop or voltmeters required

Precise control of the machine function and flow from the D1P pump

No programming required, but enhanced features can be programmed using the PLUS+1® service tool or PLUS+1® GUIDE

Backup alarm and neutral start functions included

The control algorithm in the JS1 joystick has been purpose-built to comply with our PVG actuators. Together, the JS1-H, PVG and D1P pump are a Perfect Match. Also, both the JS1-H and D1P are available from Danfoss partner build programs or base model programs, reducing OEM’s time to market.

The match

JS1 heavy duty joysticks

JS1 heavy duty joysticks

The JS1-H family of heavy-duty joysticks provides you with a wide portfolio of ergonomically designed, modular components, all fully compliant with the PLUS+1® toolbox. 

The flexible design brings intelligent joystick solutions, which provide safety, reliability, and performance. These ensure every job is done efficiently, well, and in perfect comfort for machine operators.

PVG256 proportional load sense valves

PVG256 proportional load-sense valves

The PVG family of load-sense work function valves have provided the highest level of reliability and flow precision for over 35 years. The unique PVG256 delivers high power flows up to 500lpm at 350bar and is configurable to include lower flow PVG work functions creating a single optimized work function valve package. 

Controls include manual, analog and CANbus actuation options compatible with Danfoss JS1 joystick or any machine control system. Together, the PVG256 and high power D1P open circuit pump provide customers with a complete hydraulic system and proven performance results for construction, oil and gas, marine and specialty markets just to name a few. 

D1P high power open circuit pumps

D1P high power open circuit pumps

The D1P is a high-pressure, high-performance variable axial piston pump, developed specifically for open-circuit systems in the most extreme application environments. Its robust design makes it an ideal solution for concrete machinery, mining machinery, cranes, drilling machinery, offshore, marine, and oil and gas equipment.

The D1P expands the Danfoss open circuit pump portfolio to include higher hydraulic power product options for customers. It’s designed to work seamlessly with PVG high-flow valves, providing OEMs with a full hydraulic system portfolio.


Application example

Foundation drilling equipment require the highest efficiency in transferring the maximum amount of working power. Controlling this power would not be possible without components that are optimized and pretuned to ensure that each machine can reliably and repeatably create the productive results that end users look for.   

  • JS1-H provides effortless operator control and comfort for every drilling, winch, crowd and swing cycle. Directly compliant to PVG256 electrical actuators
  • D1P193 open circuit pump provides the hydraulic power responding to all operator flow needs on demand from the PVG256 work sections
  • PVG256 work function valve provides the precision control responding to all operator JS1-H movements
