Endless configuration possibilities

Operators get a real feel for control with our wide range of joysticks. Endless configuration possibilities and ergonomic designs enable smooth and comfortable operation of your light or heavy-duty vehicles.

Intelligent mobile control

Single- and dual-axis configurations, multiple mechanical and electrical interface options: our joysticks are as versatile as they come. A complete range of modular PLUS+1® Compliant joysticks support our intelligent mobile control solutions.

Joystick bases

Select the joystick base for your application, and we will customize it to your needs. The possibilities include detents, friction locks, redundant outputs and switch functions. Hall effect and potentiometric sensing technologies are available.

Joystick grips

Match the base with one of our joystick grips. Or let us help you develop a customized grip if your needs are unique.
