Single-axis joysticks from Otto include the JHS-RC0001 and JHS-F0001. The former is a return-to-center joystick tested to 4 million cycles with no sign of boot wear and no degradation of electrical performance. Suitable for the construction and off-road vehicle market, its electronics are sealed to IP68S, and it provides resistance to radio-frequency interference (RFI) at 100 V/m. The JHS-F0001 friction-hold joystick also is designed for the construction and off-road vehicle market and provides resistance to RFI at 100 V/m, but its lever does not return to center when released. Created for precise control, the JHS-F0001 features compact size, improved strength, and contactless Hall-effect sensors sealed to IP68S. It offers a mechanical life of 500,000 cycles.
