APEM TS LED Illuminated Hall Effect Mini Thumb Joystick

APEM TS LED Illuminated Hall Effect Mini Thumb Joysticks are IP67 rated, include an LED backlight, and feature contactless Hall effect technology to provide long-life proportional control. With a total current draw no greater than 16mA, these APEM LED Thumbsticks are ideally suited for wireless remote control applications where low visibility, battery life, and power consumption are critical. The backlighting option utilizes an overmolded polycarbonate castle-style actuator to effectively diffuse the LED and provide illumination over a wide viewing angle. These joysticks include red and blue color options.
