January 27, 2021 - Schmersal joystick selector switches have design features that make them suitable for food processing, pharmaceutical, and medical applications. The joysticks comply with the special cleaning requirements of the food industry to prevent cross-contamination, particularly when used in machines that process raw goods.
The IP69K rating also makes the joysticks suitable for marine applications, traffic systems, commercial vehicles, and any dusty, dirty environments. Blue bellows versions are used in the food processing industry to assist in the detection of foreign materials, and gray bellows versions are used for other industrial and outdoor applications.
Standard 22mm mounting makes the joysticks installed using a central knurled mounting nut; standard M12 connections are used. The spring-return momentary contact joysticks allow operators to move to 2 or 4 positions.
Schmersal IP69K rated joysticks from AutomationDirect are cULus and CE approved and have a 1-year warranty.
