The XS series from APEM is a two axis Hall effect joystick featuring a reduced panel height to provide precise fingertip control. Measuring in at less than 45mm, the XS allows for unimpeded access to other devices located on the control panel. This compact, low-profile design reduces the risk of inadvertent operation as well as damage when mounted in handheld mobile devices that are prone to accidental drops.
Featuring redundant Hall effect sensors, the XS series fingertip joystick delivers more than 10 million operations, is IP66 above panel sealed and is considered Sil2 compatible, making it the ideal solution for outdoor applications where safety is critical. The new XS series is the perfect addition to a growing line of robust controllers, from miniature thumbsticks to handgrips, and perfect in markets where durability is a necessity. The XS series is commonly used in construction, marine, material handling and robotic applications.
