Unbeatable small installation depth and the highest stability in its class
The joysticks of the series 844 exhibit properties, which are normally found in heavy-duty products only, even though it is a very compact finger joystick. For example, with handle "T" the 844 becomes the most compact stock grip joystick with push button (see picture above in the center). In this configuration the 844 has the advantage over larger models of lower price and space requirements.
The joysticks of the series 844 are equipped with wear-less Hall Effect sensors, are available with up to 3 axes, and exhibit a robust mechanical construction, with a ball-socket pivot. It withstands high push, pull, translational and rotational forces, up to a load of 400 N (vertically). The operational life time is up to 10 million operations. The EMI/RFI resistance is impressive, due to an internal magnetic screening, and redundant sensors are available.
With protection up to IP65, a variety of handle shapes, limiters and output options, the optimum product can be selected for the application.
- Analog or PWM output
- Supply voltage of 5 V (ratiometric) or 3.3 V (stabilized)
- Center detection and center tap as standard for 5 V supply voltage versions
- Impressive 400 N / 40 kg load max from above
- Unrivalled installation depth of < 20 mm.
