Potentiometers and Hall Effect Hand Joysticks

The Industrial Hand joysticks are equiped with pontentiometers or Hall Effect sensors. The Hall Effect is based on contactless Hall effect technology where a magnet underneath the moving joystick lever affects the electromagnetic field that is generated by an Hall effect sensor beneath the magnet. Industrial Hall effect joysticks are similar to the traditional potentiometric joysticks as they both give a proportional electrical output signal that corresponds with the position of the joystick lever. Hall effect technology has some advantages over potentiometric echnology. The contactless Hall effect technology implies that there is no contact between the sensor and the moving magnet. Therefore the sensor element does not wear out by repetitive movements and heavy vibrations which results in a long life expectancy.

We understand that each application is unique and requires different functionalities. For those applications we offer many configuration options and customization, even for small quantities. At the same time we see many similarities in project requirements and an increasing demand for standardized products. For those customers we offer standard configurations from stock.
