Inherently RFI/EMC immune and most flexible in its class

The joysticks of the series 842 exhibit properties, which are normally found in bigger joystick models only, even though it is a very compact finger joystick. Particularly worth mentioning is the possibility to configure the three axes independently and the option for a friction clutch in x and/or y-axis.
The series is equipped with potentiometers, because potentiometers are still the best choice if EMI/RFI resistance requirements are very high. The joysticks are available with up to 3 axes, and exhibit a robust mechanical metal mechanism. This way the return properties of the x and y-axis can be changed by e.g. using a stronger or weaker spring, or by using a friction clutch.
Due to the variety of handle shapes, the optimum product can be selected for the application. A special feature is the option for micro switches, if the open frame version is chosen.

  • Potentiometer in rail-to-rail configuration (full angle) or with partial angle output are available
  • Alternative to Hall effect joysticks due to inherent immunity to electromagnetic interference
