FAQs

A joystick is a device that transforms mechanical movement from an operator and turns this into an electrical output. This electrical output can then be read by a computer system to create a desired effect. This can be either controlling a computer game, a CCTV camera or a fighter jet.

Joysticks have many advantages in certain applications. Their main advantage is the ease of use and instinctive nature for many operators. This means reduced time for training and to become proficient in the use of a device. They can also be highly accurate and enable an operator to control the device into a desired position quicker than some other forms of input such as pushbuttons or keypads. Lastly, they can incorporate additional switches allowing for the device to be used for many additional functions without the operator being required to remove their hand.
