The 7169 is a multi-purpose joy stick that deflects 30 degrees from the mid-position in all directions. Operation of the lever moves the potentiometer and also contacts a make and break micro switch in the mid-position. The 7169 is available with either spring return to mid-position or neutral detent. This means the lever can be left in any position.
The 7169 is available in multiple configurations with potentiometers and/or switches. It is commonly used for controlling both marine and industrial equipment and machinery.
