Both the VNSO and the NNSO are very robust joysticks with aluminium pressure casting consoles and metal gears. Their resistance against ozone, UV radiation, oil and maritime climate makes them especially suitable for heavy operations and in Ex-areas. They are available both as single and compound axis drives. The intelligent modular design allows customized solutions for contact elements for up to twelve units, each of them with two switching contacts. Those may be flanged in the x-,y- and z-axis as well as in series. A maximum of nine contact elements is feasible with spring return and notches. A large standard portfolio allows to choose the notches as well as the cams. They are also programmable according to client’s request. Silver or gold contacts are optional. The hollow handle shaft made of a special alloy, with 8 mm diameter for VNS0, 12 mm diameter for NNS0, enables assembly of a variety of handles and offers the possibility of guiding cables through the joystick. Rotational movements are also possible with a variety of handle options. The special coupling system offers a simple possibility for flanged mounting of various potentiometers and optoelectronic encoders. There are also a variety of printed circuit boards for bus systems available with adapted system size. You can optionally receive the nameplate according to your specifications in a transparent plastic version with the labeling of your choice, or as an engraved aluminum version.
