ST0 joystick: solid & compact

Spohn & Burkhardt produces both standard and customized ST0 joysticks by means of a modular principle. A sturdy metal cast drive block is always at the heart of the joystick. It assures a long service life and high number of switching cycles. With a spring-return-to-center, a friction brake and mechanical interlocking, the ST0 offers a wide range of options and variations.

The joystick comes in either a 5-0-5 step output or a spring-return contact. A hybrid version combining locking contact positions with momentary contact positions also is a possibility. Equipped with micro-switches, double contact elements, potentiometers or absolute encoders, the ST0 can be used for a wide range of demanding control tasks. Thanks to an integrated bus interface it operates reliably both as 'bus node' and with a valve amplifier for activation of solenoid valves.

A comprehensive assortment of handles completes the ST0 joystick in terms of optical and tactile features. This joystick is frequently used in control consoles, construction machinery, municipal vehicles and work platforms.
