Joystick Controller uses non-contact Hall-Effect technology.
November 15, 2010 -
Supporting 1-3 axes, Model XL-VNSO provides proportional control of electro-hydraulic proportional valves found on off-road mobile equipment. Unit is constructed with Nickel chromium gimbal yokes, hardened steel bearings, polished steel shaft guides, bronze gate handle stops, and dual compression return springs on each axis. Joystick can accommodate applications that require digital or analog command signals to control variable-speed drives, PLCs, and microprocessors, including CAN bus.

NEW XL-VNSO High Duty Cycle Hall-Effect Joystick Controller
The NEW XL-VNSO Hall-effect joystick controller was derived from an industry workhorse, the high duty cycle XL-VNSO potentiometric joystick. Enhanced with long life, non-contacting Hall-effect technology, the new XL-VNSO offers the same durable mechanics as its predecessor. Hall-effect output meets or exceeds CE EMC requirements.
This 1-, 2- and 3-axis super rugged joystick for high-duty cycle applications and rough environments will provide precise proportional control of electro-hydraulic proportional valves commonly found on off-road mobile equipment. The XL-VNSO Joystick will also accommodate applications that require digital or analog command signals to control variable-speed drives, PLCs and microprocessors, including CAN bus.
The XL-VNSO is constructed with Nickel chromium gimbal yokes (properties similar to stainless steel), hardened steel bearings, polished steel shaft guides, bronze gate handle stops and dual compression return springs in each axis. A variety of standard and custom gates and a large selection of handles are available.
The XL-VNSO Hall-effect, high duty cycle joystick controller from J.R. Merritt Controls, Inc. is suitable for use on cranes, bucket trucks, aerial work platforms and material handling equipment in the forestry, mining and construction industries.
