Series 60C Multi-Function Joystick

Grayhill, Inc. and Digi-Key introduce the Series 60C multi-function joystick

Image of Grayhill's Series 60CSeries 60C is Grayhill's most advanced cursor control device. This three-in-one, multi-function device integrates an optical encoder, joystick and push-button onto concentric shafts.

As a compact cursor control device, Grayhill's Series 60C is ideally suited for dashboards where use of separate joysticks, encoders and push-buttons might be impractical. To interface with on-board information systems, the joystick positions a cursor; the rotary encoder facilitates sequential scrolling through menu options; and the push-button performs on-screen menu selects.

Grayhill multi-function encoders are widely used in automotive and avionics applications, but can also improve cursor control in medical devices and positioning in robotic control. The unique, integrated design facilitates positioning, scrolling and selecting with very little hand movement. Furthermore, these tasks are achieved without changing controls so the operator can focus on the task at hand instead of the joystick.
