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. 

The design brief included the use of a smaller enclosure unit and replacing the existing toggle switches with a control that provides a more contemporary ‘feel’. 

An alternative style of joystick and new membrane keypad have been incorporated into the unit re-design and by using Camis in-house surface mount capability an overall height reduction of 40% has been achieved, resulting in a significant increase in functionality for the customer.
