A compact finger-operated twist handle control, the MG20, provides operators with intuitive control in applications requiring rotational or bidirectional motion. Its ±45° displacement gives smooth, wide resolution control in a variety of applications. The output signal is produced by long-life Hall-effect technology, which is built into the cylindrical handle. The device can be mounted to Pro and CS Series joysticks, producing up to three axes of coordinated control.
