This range of miniature force-operated joysticks (stiff sticks) provide the operator with rugged, small footprint, positional controllers. Strain gauge elements bonded directly to the joystick shaft sense force and direction. This configuration gives an infinitely variable output, effectively no moving parts, and high reliability.
Stiff sticks are an ideal solution for mobile applications where shock and vibration are a problem, harsh environmental conditions apply or simply where space is at a premium. They have long been the preferred option for mobile military equipment.
