Otto Controls has released an addition to its line of Hall-effect joysticks, the JHT-00004. The JHT-00004 joystick features a compact design, with a behind-panel depth of 19 mm (0.75 in). The robust construction makes the control a suitable solution in limited space situations and where precision control is required. It's built for rugged and tactical environments; its applications include robotics, construction equipment, hydraulic controls, and video cameras. The JHT-00004 uses Hall-effect contactless technology and has been tested to 1 million cycles with no degradation of electrical performance or boot wear. Electronics are sealed to IP68S, and the electromagnetic induction/radio-frequency interference withstands are per SAE J1113 specifications.
