Finger-Operated Joysticks


APEM, Inc. announces the XF series; a ruggedized finger operated joystick controller specifically engineered for vehicle applications. This joystick series is designed per the ISO 25197 standard, which establishes the requirements for the design, construction and testing of electrical/electronic steering, shift and throttle and dynamic position control systems on marine watercraft up to 24 m in length. Adhering to this standard, the XF series is rated to withstand 80lbf pull force across the X/Y axis and over 5Nm torque in the Z-axis.  


The XF Series utilizes contactless Hall-effect sensing to provide long life proportional control for over five million lifecycles. It is available with up to three proportional axes, two momentary pushbuttons and carries an IP67 above panel sealing rating. Featuring a shallow mounting of 26 mm below the panel, the HF Series requires minimal console space making it ideal for vehicle applications where ergonomics and operator comfort are paramount.


The XF series may be specified with CAN bus J1939, CAN bus J1939-71 or CANopen outputs. It can accommodate a supply voltage ranging from 6 to 35VDC and will operate between -40 to +85°C. It has been qualified per EMC Standards, EN61000-6-3:200, EN61000-4-3 Extended and ESD: EN61000-4-2 Extended.
