NEW MULTIFUNCTION HANDLE IS DESIGNED FOR RIGHT HAND OPERATION
APEM introduces the newest XD series option, the RT handle. An ergonomic grip offering a wide selection of pushbutton and Hall effect thumbwheel combinations. Designed exclusively for APEM’s XD series joystick, the RT grip provides IP67 above panel sealing and is ideally suited for vehicle applications requiring dedicated right hand operation.
Featuring both front and rear facing configuration plates, the handle allows users to easily reach all forward facing functions with an easy sweep of the thumb. Considering the maximum possible configuration, the new RT handle can provide up to four axes of proportional control and 10 momentary switching functions. The XD RT includes redundant Hall effect sensors to provide more than 10 million operations, and measures just 60mm below panel yet withstands horizontal loads up to 400lbf. The XD series may be specified with CAN bus J1939 or CANopen outputs and is considered Sil2 compatible. The result is a compact yet robust joystick ideally suited for off-highway vehicles and machinery.
