Joysticks are always present in our everyday life - whether playing computer games or switching gears in the car. Industrial joysticks are used, for example, in vehicles, robots, construction cranes and agricultural machinery. Input via a joystick enables direct control of connected technical systems.
Joysticks are available in digital and analog versions. Our joysticks use potentiometers and magnetic sensors (wear-free 3-D Hall technology) to measure the deflection when the joystick is moved. The voltage is converted into a digital signal either in the joystick or in the connected system.
Our product portfolio includes standardized designs as well as single and multi-axis joysticks and multi-function handles developed specifically for the customer.
You can't tell from the outside what a joystick can do. The marvel of sensor technology opens up inside the component. With a low weight, the Metallux.de joysticks are compact, precise, robust and combine several technologies depending on the requirements.
