Kobelt’s model 7169 joystick is a compact, single axis input device ideally suited for marine and harsh industrial applications. Manufactured from bronze and stainless steel the product is protected from water ingress by a UV resistant rubber boot.
Moving the lever forward or aft operates the potentiometer and can also operate a SPDT micro-switch in the mid-position.
The unit can be configured to have various output options to suit the user’s control needs such as bow thruster, steering gear, winch control, hydraulic servo devices, C.P. propulsion and throttle controls. The handle can also be configured with either spring return to mid-position (neutral detent) or with friction to retain the lever in any position.
