The XL-VNSO joystick shares the same rugged construction and long-life as the standard VNSO, but in a more compact size. This high-duty joystick is often used in applications with space constraints that still require heavy duty construction and operation. Unlike the VNSO, the XL-VNSO can be configured with microswitches, hall-effect and PWM output types.
• Versatile design
• Super heavy-duty construction
• Long-life, dual compression return springs each axis
• Nickel chromium gimbal yokes (properties similar to stainless steel)
• Hardened steel bearings and polished steel shaft guides
• Bronze gate handle stops
• Conformal coated electronics to resist moisture
• Type V7 11A form C switches.
• Hall-effect output meets or exceeds CE EMC requirements
Third axis is achieved via a twist handle function or thumbwheel.
• Open Gate
Unrestricted handle travel up to +/- 36° (potentiometer). Up to +/- 20° (bang/bang and hall-effect)
• Cross Gate
Guided handle travel up to +/- 36° (potentiometer). Up to +/- 20° (bang/bang and hall-effect)
• Spring Return
Handle returns to center

The XL-VNSO is often used in high duty applications with limited panel space. Typical applications include:
• Logging & forestry equipment
• Specialty agricultural equipment
• Mining machinery
• Mobile cranes
• And more
