XD Series


New product

The XD Series joystick is a multi-axis Hand Grip controller specifically engineered for demanding vehicle applications. 
Featuring non-contacting Hall effect technology to provide up to 10 million operations, the XD series is a compact yet highly reliable joystick ideally suited for off-highway vehicles and machinery. The XD series measures just 60 mm below panel, yet withstands horizontal loads up to 400 lbf. utilizing an all metal construction. The XD handle utilizes a uni-body construction with modular inserts to provide design flexibility. Inserts include an index trigger switch, operator presence paddle and customizable faceplate and enables IP67 above panel environmental sealing against the ingress of dust and liquids.
