The 9000 series consists of products that work with various applications, such as those that demand proportional control with the lowest possible profile below the panel. Their development was made possible by the proven 7000 series, while the 9000 series employs the same contactless, highly-proven devices. The mechanics have also been improved significantly, reducing the below-panel depth to a world-class 35mm sub-panel.
The joystick offers self-centering functionality, omni-directional, utilizing the exclusive 'locking cam' system to secure the highly repeatable mechanism around the precision ground steel operation shaft. The high-precision air wound coils are mounted on the SMT circuitry, which ensures minimal depth for the joystick installation. Finally, the joystick operates by passing an oscillated current through a drive coil, mounted at the lower operating lever end.
