The use of joysticks is now very commonplace in many industrial applications such as CCTV, plant machinery, UAV’s, ROV’s and even turret control, or any application that requires X/Y and sometime Z axis movement. The electrical technology has developed from simple switching joysticks to Hall effect sensors and CAN bus control modules which offers the user proportional control as well as adding new functions.
Some of the larger products have integral faceplates where thumb stick joystick controls and other mechanical switches can be mounted offering the user even more functionality. Unlike one of the earlier joystick controllers (see photo CH1), the Industrial Joystick is utilized in harsher and more demanding applications, requiring more robust manufacturing processes and a high level of quality control. This evolution offers the user precise, accurate functional control throughout the life of the product.
