J4/J5 industrial joysticks are offered in analog, digital, or PWM and CAN bus output versions, to resist EMC interferences. Analog version provides a rotating magnetic field over a Hall effect sensor; digital version uses a reed switch mechanism. Angular operating range is ±25° in the X- and Y-axis. They operate in temperatures from –40° to 85° C. Many knob configurations are available, with up to eight pushbuttons or two thumbwheel pots onboard.
