The Hall Effect technology works by having a sensor that detects the altered position of an element (such as the shaft in a joystick or encoder) within a magnetic field. The position is proportionally outputted via various formats such as I2C, open collector or push-pull output.
- Series 67A: IP67 rated Hall-Effect joystick with a built in micro-controller for I2C communication protocol – first to offer digital output from a joystick with a 28mm tall bat-handle, requiring just 18mm of behind panel depth.
- Series 67B: one of the smallest joysticks to offer Hall-Effect technology with I2C digital output and only requires 3.3V of power input; IP67 Rated.
- Series 67C: gives the user the option to have joystick, pushbutton, and encoder all in one. Analog joystick outputs are proportional to angle of shaft deflection.
- Series 68A: quadrature coding with push / pull output, additional interface options include an integrated pushbutton.
- Series 68B: a dash-panel switch that can function as a two-way joystick (spring-return to center), a rocker switch or a latching push button.
- Series 68P: a non-contact rotary position sensor with a rated operational life of 3,000,000 cycles.
