Romeo Joysticks

ROMEO joysticks are sturdy and reliable components, designed for harsh environments which demand quality and durability. ROMEO, a revision of the CK joystick, is larger than the JULIET, and offers all of the same functions and options, with multiple handle and button configurations. .

Features
– Structural components are made of die-cast nickel-plated zama to ensure maximum resistance, while parts subject to wear are made of techno-polymer.
– Positive opening NC contacts for safety functions.
– Mechanical life of switches: 1 million operations.
– IP protection degree: Romeo is classified IP00 or IP65, if housed in a specific enclosure.
– Extreme temperature resistance: -25°C to +70°C.

Options

– Available with up to 6 speeds for each direction.
– Stepped or linear operation with spring return or maintained position.
– Cross or 360° movement.
– 3 different versions: with free movement, with “dead man” safety device (with mechanical interlock with or without NO/NC contact), or with NO pushbutton to be used as electrical interlock.
– 3 different handles, also available with pushbuttons and selector switches.
– Available with potentiometers.
– Stepless proportional version available, with built-in analogue actuator and current, voltage or PWM outputs.

Certifications

– CE marking and EAC certification.
