Genge & Thoma boat controls and other joysticks at ALDERS
The joysticks by OTTO Controls or Genge & Thoma are based on the Hall Effect or potentiometers. Joysticks with Hall sensor apply the principle of the magnetic field measurement of the so-called Hall Effect. The advantages of these sensors are that they are on the one hand not sensitive to electromagnetic as well as high-frequency interferences from up to 100 Volt per metre. On the other, the Hall Effect sensors permit up to several million switching operations – in other words, they are very durable. In contrast, the functioning of joysticks or pushbuttons with potentiometer technology of a potentiometer is based on the electric resistance. Genge & Thoma or OTTO Controls joysticks are used in many different application areas, for example in machines to measure coordinates, in medical devices such as electric scooters or in driver cabins of machines and vehicles. Some products have several interchangeable grip versions, so that a thumb joystick can be adapted to suit the specific application. In addition to joysticks for aviation or other companies, we also offer Genge & Thoma boat controls and foot pedals.
