HE3 Series – Redundant Sensor, Fully Sealed Multi-Axis Hall Effect Joystick

Redundant sensor 2 or 3 Axis Hall Effect fingertip controlled joystick. Developed for systems which require an added level of safety, independent dual sensors were implemented into each axis and all models are IP67 sealed (minimum).

These joysticks evolved from a need in safety-critical situations to give the end user and system architect the peace of mind necessary to get the job done.

Each unit is supplied with applicable mounting hardware and electrical cable.

 

 


HCK Series – Precision Hall Effect Control Knob

The panel mounted Hall Effect Control Knob provides smooth proportional output control in a compact, low-profile design.

For applications which require reliable single axis control, the HCK Series delivers precision linear voltage control in a spring return to center rotary package.

The standard IP67 environmental seal ensures this controller can operate in either indoor or rugged outdoor environments.
