Joysticks

Grayhill’s joysticks provide the human interface for directional control. They are available with mechanical switching or magnetic Hall-effect sensors for long life.

Our NavCoders are unique human interface devices for navigating through on-screen software. They integrate the following three technologies:

  • 4-way or 8-way directional control to navigate through menu options
  • Center pushbutton for selecting menu options
  • Rotational control for scrolling through many options or adjusting an intensity setting such as volume

Typical applications include:

  • Dashboard controls on Off-Highway vehicles
  • Medical electronics, including imaging and patient monitoring
  • Audio/video equipment, including professional editing
  • Avionics, including communications and navigation
  • Automotive GPS, climate control, and entertainment

Customization can include:

  • Custom detents (clicks) and feel (haptics)
  • Various housing and mounting options
  • Multiple termination and cabling options
  • Custom electronics
