An upgrade to a joystick control for off-road agricultural vehicles.

The customer requirement was for a 5 axis proportional control rather than the existing 3 axis. It was to be housed in a smaller enclosure and the existing toggle switches were to be replaced with something to provide the unit control with a “more contemporary feel”. To achieve the required result an alternative style of joystick and new membrane keypad have been incorporated into a unit redesign which has an overall height 40% less than the existing unit.
