The devices use inductive sensing to gage motion and will self-center. The same technology ensures even distribution of internal loads and makes the actuator strong and rigid throughout its life. The joysticks feature a low-profile design (sticking out less than 36 mm behind the panel), high EMC immunity, IP65 sealing, and lasts over 10,000,000 cycles. Available with a wide variety of actuator knobs, the devices come in one, two, and three-axis configurations.
