Twist-grip throttle with:

  • Spring return to zero.
  • Suitable for all controllers made by 4QD.
  • 90° twist gives zero to full speed (0-100% of pot travel).
  • 5K pot.
  • Integral tube clamp for 22mm diameter tube.
  • Cable supplied is 1.7m long, 3 core 16/0.2mm [note: this is too thick to reliably connect with the IDC connectors used on our controllers, we recommend using a short length of our CMC-703 cable and a 3 way splicing connector.

It is rated to the German standard DIN IEC Teil 2-17 Qc2, which corresponds approximately to IP64.

We have a hall effect twist grip throttle here, this is a lower cost [and more available] alternative that can be used with most of our controllers.
