APEM Intros Compact Switch Joysticks
Joystick switch controllers.
Vista, CA — APEM, Inc. is introducing the NZ Series of compact switch joysticks. With above panel options that mimic the look of either a joystick or toggle switch, the NZ Series offers an IP67 panel sealed, two axes control in a compact below panel housing.

The NZ Series is supplied with two switch options. Constructed with gold plated silver alloy contacts to provide reliable switching at low current levels, the NZ Series is rated for 2A and 100mA respectively.

The product is supplied with an open square gate, allowing the user to move freely in 360°. This omni-direction movement allows the user to move in a diagonal direction which yields a contact on two switches simultaneously. As a standard option, the joystick may be factory fitted with an anodized aluminum limiter plate, limiting the travel to just NSEW or NS directions.

Additional features include: alternate handle selection and a Polyimide Flexi Tail termination option. The joysticks are rated for 1 million operations with an operating temperature range of -25 to +50°C.

The joysticks are designed for the control of either machine functions or menu navigation. APEM is ISO9001-certified, ITAR-registered, and a member of SGIA.
