Joystick With Thumbwheel

The XL-VNSO joystick is for high-duty-cycle applications and rough use.

The one, two, and three-axis joystick features an electronic amplifier for precise control of electrohydraulic proportional valves used in off-road mobile equipment, as well as uses needing digital or analog command signals to control variable-speed drives, PLC, and microprocessors. The device is constructed with nickel-chromium gimbal yokes, hardened-steel bearings, polished-steel shaft guides, bronze gate handle stops, and dual-compression return springs in each axis.
