JOYSCAPE

THE IDEAL PLATFORM FOR YOUR APPLICATION

As a system supplier, RAFI has been using joysticks for years. That’s because they are ideal for intuitive and safe operation in many applications.

Each joystick handle is tailored to customer specifications. You get exactly the solution you need and your operators enjoy intuitive, ergonomic control. The JOYSCAPE from RAFI applies a wear-free 3D Hall sensor system. The resulting compact systems are extremely reliable and capable of at least 5 million operations.

You might think complex customer-specific control systems are more expensive than off-the-shelf solutions. But take a closer look and you’ll appreciate the many practical advantages: precision quality, ergonomics and haptics specially tailored to each application, and custom design solutions.

THREE VARIANTS

The JOYSCAPE platform comes in three versions with different characteristics. All platforms are based on a wear-free 3D Hall sensor system. The sensors are designed redundantly for applications with high safety requirements.

RAFI joysticks feature angles of deflection of 20° orthogonally and 28° diagonally. Depending on your application, you can also select smaller angles. The standard JOYSCAPE program covers all common applications.

YOUR BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

  • The Hall design allows for extremely rugged systems with low design heights.
  • All the components are mechanically very robust.
  • There is also a ferromagnetic steel housing that effectively shields the sensor system for additional ruggedness.
  • Thanks to a special mechanical design, RAFI joysticks come with a large tilt angle and a small mounting hole. This means you can use folding bellows with a minimum of folds. The result is a low-wear, easy-clean solution for long life and hygienic use.
  • The haptics of RAFI joysticks can be adjusted by selecting different actuator springs.
  • Preferred guidance supports operational safety.
