As your partner in standard and customized controllers Althen provides the ultimate choice in rugged joysticks from ‘fingertip’ to ‘full hand grip' models.
Our miniature joysticks are the smallest joysticks available and are specially designed for mounting in narrow spaces.
These finger tip controlled joysticks are used for applications such as wheelchairs, robotic operations, medical instruments or where precision is essential.
The hand operated joystick controllers are used in heavy duty applications such as cranes, robotic operations and harvesting machines.
The Multi-operational Cobra Controllers can be used to operate complex functions with incorporated push button switches and seesaw motion potentiometer.
Specifically designed for dynamic positioning and used in marine and offshore applications.
Our joysticks can be delivered with ATEX components which makes them suited for hazardous explosive atmospheres where high reliability and safety are required.
Althen offers reliable high-end footpedals, equipped with potentiometers, hall effect sensors or switches.
Industrial Foot Controllers are reliable high end footpedals used in applications such as mining vehicles and winches, up to medical instruments and studio equipment.
Our precision Rotary Positions Sensors use conductive plastic technology, are available as wirewound models with larger power dissipation and longer lifetime.
Multi-turn Potentiometers are used to determine position on industrial controls of operating machines and robots and to control motions.
Single Turn Potentiometers are available in many different (shaft) sizes, housings and resistance ranges.
These oil-filled potentiometers are often used in R&D, industrial and maritime applications.
Sin/Cos potentiometers available in both wirewound and conductive plastic. Used for precise detection of Sine-Cosine function voltage.
Motor potentiometers are servo units that consist of a very precise potentiometer combined with a reduction gear mechanism and a coreless DC motor.
These dial potentiometers are designed for panel controls where adjustment setting/lock device or a turn indicating device is needed.
Rotary Magnetic Hall Effect Sensors are based on a non-contact principle and are suited for use in harsh environments.
Rotary Encoders convert mechanical movement into an electrical signal.
Linear Position Sensors for measuring position, displacement and distance, offer a wide variety of technology. Resolutions down to nanometer ranges.
Linear-motion Potentiometers are compact in size and light in weight and are capable of transforming mechanical linear movements into corresponding electrical variations.
Linear Magnetic Hall Sensors are suitable for applications to detect the position of linear-motion displacement.
Magnetostrictive Linear Position Sensors provide highly accurate and reliable position control signals and are suited for demanding industrial (automation) environments.
Incremental Linear Encoders monitor linear movement and provide position feedback in the form of electrical signals.
