About our MR finger joystick

This compact and low profile finger-operated potentiometer joystick is available in two or three-axis precision control. The pre-programmed proportional output per axis provides excellent resistance to EMI, in a small yet robust package. Combined with the low operating force needed to move the controller and variety of handle and mounting options, this allows for easy integration in a wide array of systems. It is perfect for applications like measurement systems, robotic systems, CCTV, machine control, conveyor systems, PTZ camera control, wheelchair control or in environments where high magnetic fields are present.
