Meeting the requirements

Joysticks are sophisticated components in the man-machine interface.

At Danfoss, we develop and update our range continuously to meet the growing functional and safety requirements of today’s mobile machines.

From time to time, this means phasing out older products to make way for the newest technology and ergonomic designs.

To support customers during the phasing-out period, we continue to supply these joysticks as legacy products.

The following legacy joysticks are currently available:

  • Contactless hall effect or long-life potentiometric sensing
  • Redundant sensors
  • Single or dual axis
  • Outputs
    • Analog
    • CAN(J1939, CANopen)
    • CAN+(J1939)
    • PWM(High Current)
  • Up to IP66/67 environmental sealing above panel & IP66 below panel
  • Grip options
    • A-grip
    • MG grip
