Elobau Sensor Technology's 175D miniature thumbwheel for industrial applications is based on Hall-effect noncontact sensing technology for longer life. Two output signals can be combined in eight different options and switching outputs. Designed to be incorporated in either the knob of a joystick, a multifunctional handle for a shifter, or into a control panel, the thumbwheel provides proportional control of auxiliary functions. An illuminated concept clearly identifies what function is activated, even in adverse lighting conditions. Illumination is provided by three LEDs or by one multifunction LED that changes colors when the function is activated. The thumbwheel operates from -40 to +85ºC (-40 to +185ºF). Suitable applications include control panel, armrest, shifter, single- or dual-axis joystick, or any control-panel application on industrial equipment, remote controls, mobile equipment, machine tools, or other machinery.
