CTI’s OEM industrial joystick provides a NEMA 4 (IP66) sealing and can be manufactured with the following options; protection from extreme operating temperatures (-40°C to +80°C), electronic component protection from rapid changes in temperature causing condensation or areas of high humidity (conformal PCB coating), protection from EMI/RFI signals, and a redundant safety feature (Optical Neutral “Safety” Switch). This rugged industrial joystick is ideally suited for harsh environments, dirty environments (liquids or solid debris matter), precision control instrumentation, and limited physical mounting surfaces (e.g. wheel chair joysticks). The F1000 Series industrial joysticks have numerous applications in a variety of industries (e.g. aerospace, military, marine, medical, transportation). CTI’s OEM industrial joystick is also available as a USB FlightStick, a.k.a. sidewinder joystick, gaming joystick, flight simulator controller, see CTIs Industrial Motion Controllers.
Today we offer 10 different industrial joystick knob selections which include four non-pushbutton models (N5, N2, N24, N54) four pushbutton models (N3, N33, N63, N34), and two 3 Axes models (N82, N84). All of these industrial joystick models have the exact same mounting holes making it very easy for mechanical designer.
The F1000 Series industrial joystick is also offered as an Industrial Mouse™. CTI provides an analog to digital interface card that uses a standard computer mouse protocol (via Serial, PS/2, or USB) to communication with the host computer. CTI’s industrial joysticks are known as one of the best Industrial Mouse™ pointing devices available anywhere in the world.
CTI's Medical joysticks are available as a computer pointing device (a.k.a. Industrial Mouse™) available in Serial, PS/2, or USB interfaces. Or, these medical joysticks are available as motion control devices (USB Joystick, USB FlightStick, a.k.a. sidewinder joysticks) and offered with either an analog or USB interface. For more information about joysticks being used as motion control devices see CTIs Industrial Motion Controllers.
