Understanding the Progression of Joystick Technologies

Beta Test Site Application Available for OEM and System Integrators


L1000-N5 Series LightStick® Optical Joystick

NEMA 4 (IP66) Optical Joystick

Product Information

L1000-N5 Series Optical Joystick Features

The LightStick® / Optical Joystick is a new technology by CTI Electronics, it’s a leap forward in the evolution of man-machine interface control.  The current joystick technology being used today such as potentiometer joysticks, hall effect joystick, and inductive joysticks have flaws or disadvantages. Most electronic joystick technologies have a work-around to the disadvantages but will add additional time and material costs to its application. The LightStick® / Optical Joystick technology offers two key advantages over potentiometer, hall effect, and inductive joystick technologies. First, the Optical Joystick would have virtually zero susceptibility to Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) signals. Secondly, the Optical Joystick has no susceptibility to high vibration motion or movement.

CTI's custom optical joysticks are ruggedized to meet aerospace, medical, and military standards. CTI's optical joysticks can meet MIL-STD-167-1, MIL-STD-901D, MIL-STD-461F, MIL-STD-810G, and MIL-HDBK-217F. These optical joysticks are able to withstand vibration, shock, high EMI/RFI levels, compliant for humidity, fungus, spray, and MTBF is greater than 100,000 hours.

L-Series LightStick® Optical Industrial Joystick Pricing

Thank you for selecting CTIs industrial computer peripheral products. As our customer you will discover the long term benefit and value that is designed into all of CTIs human machine interface devices. The robust design and quality craftsmanship produces a level of reliability and durability that is a step above any so-called competitive "industrial grade" device. We pride ourselves in the fact that our designs have withstood the test of time. We are constantly innovating and adapting, using the best materials and technologies available today. It's reflected in the products, which can operate from one extreme temperature range to another within moments, protect against harsh chemicals, oils, and bio-hazardous materials, and provide a water tight seal for ingress protection.

We understand that you cannot afford the risk of throwing away or having to constantly repair cheap imitations of so called "industrialized" products. The cost of service interruption, including actual downtime, loss of materials, additional labor costs, loss of actual revenue, will negatively impact your bottom line.

Your return on investment will be recognized through years of uninterrupted service, zero to little maintenance required, reduced labor costs along with employee frustration/aggravation levels, and most importantly your customers' satisfaction.

Commercial off the Shelf (COTS), factory direct, pricing is provided to our clientele which consists of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Systems Integrators, and commercial end users from a wide variety of industries such as industrial processing, medical, military, off-road equipment and aerospace. CTI's innovative modular design allows customized solutions to be rapidly prototyped from build to print specifications into a full production rollout. Our technical staff offers free consultative advice as to which manufacturing options are the most appropriate based upon the requirements of the application.

To obtain a specific price quote please use the Request for Quote (RFQ) form. Optionally, if you are unsure of the manufacturing options for the application then call us for our recommendation or use the general inquiry form.
