APEM NV Series

Enhanced Tactile Feedback in 4 Directions Plus Pushbutton.

The APEM NV series is a brand new 4 or 5-direction switch-based joystick (4 directions + pushbutton). Contrary to most navigators currently on the market, the NV series provides enhanced tactile feedback in 4 directions plus pushbutton. This results in improved haptics and extremely precise control associated with a compact size (bushing dia. 16 mm). With its chrome plated metal case and IP69K sealing level, the NV series withstands all types of adversity including water, frost, dust, sand, and hydrocarbons. Designed for the harshest environments, the NV series is extremely robust and maintains its tactile effect even during excessive shock or vibrations.
