Thumb Joysticks

Miniature joysticks for handheld, control panel and hand joystick applications

Thumb joysticks are mostly used when the hand is already helping in the application to support the control task. Therefore, only the thumb is available for control, as it is often implemented in a classic remote control. But thumb joysticks are also used in large hand joysticks for additional control tasks.

Thumb joysticks are integrated in applications with very limited space that require compact and small control devices. Thumb joysticks are therefore to be regarded as miniature joysticks. In addition to miniaturization, the thumb control mode also has an impact on functionality. It is usually limited to one or two control axes and a maximum of one pushbutton. A special form is the TRY20 with three axes, where the Z-axis is controlled with the fingers.

In many applications a technical adjustment is required and MEGATRON offers the solution. We have the claim to provide each customer individually with the best functional and economical result. With high delivery reliability and assured quality products, we focus on long-term partnerships and accompany you throughout the entire lifespan of your application.
