About our HE3 finger joystick

This is the most reliable finger-operated joystick in our HE series. It is developed for safety-critical applications with dual independent hall effect sensors implemented on each axis. All models are minimum IP67 sealed and give the peace of mind necessary to get the job done. Just like the HE2 series, the mechanism is constructed from a robust stainless steel shaft and brass X/Y mechanism. The electrical analog output options and configurable to your liking and applicable mounting hardware and electrical able are supplied with each unit.
