New at Megatron is the finger joystick 841 for one or two axes. It is equipped with directional switches and in many versions, also with buttons in the knob, available. The 841 series complements the range of miniature joysticks. In addition to the types with Hall sensors, the new joystick is available as a single or stepped input section. Its uniform design makes it very well suited, for example, for switching and proportional joysticks in a panel.Like the other types, it is compact with a mounting depth of less than 33 mm and corresponds to IP 65 on the top of the panel. The application areas of the 841 are all switching functions in machine and device control, in medical technology or video surveillance. The contacts of the series 841 are coated with gold and designed for currents up to 1A at a supply voltage of 125 VAC. This guarantees a lifetime of more than one million mechanical movements. For the different switching configurations in one or two axes, there is a middle position switch and, as an option, a preferred movement direction, in which the joystick can be moved more easily in the exact X and Y direction than diagonally. For biaxial movements there are different scenes to choose from.
Glass fiber reinforced ABS is used as housing material, the shaft is made of stainless steel. Different materials are used for the conical, cylindrical or spherical billets. With these options, the 841 series is already highly configurable. The manufacturer guarantees the provision of customized versions even in small quantities.
