The 8000 Series is a family of rugged switch joysticks. Based on the proven mechanics of the 9000 Series, the 8000 Series utilizes high quality microswitches to provide a range of possible outputs, including the option of progressive switching on a single axis for dual speed control.
The 8000 Series utilizes industrial quality microswitches with changeover contacts. As standard, the switches are rated to a maximum of 1 Amp and have gold plated contacts for reliable switching at low current levels. When specifying a joystick with a push button handle, please note the characteristics of the push button will be different from the microswitches. Please refer to APEM for full details and characteristics of your chosen configuration.
