The CS3 joystick controller from J.R. Merritt Controls features a nonbiasing center pivot design, corrosion-resistant components, and rugged construction. The unit is designed for a life of 6-million-plus mechanical cycles and will perform reliably in a range of challenging high-duty-cycle applications such as construction, agriculture, mining, forestry, and airport ground-support equipment. The controller comes with one-, two-, and three-axis operation as well as various standard and custom handles and grips with push buttons and levers. Both separate and simultaneous operations of each are achieved with standard gate patterns. Additionally, the compact joystick includes a Hall-effect sensor for a contactless proportional signal.
