Trackball Technology Overview
All products manufactured by Cursor Controls use precision made components to produce the best possible Trackball solution. Precision, robustness and reliability, essential to the professional user, are engineered into each product by careful selection of quality materials.
Many of the Trackball products use components tested far beyond the expectation of the product, and can endure some of the harshest operating demands experienced in industry today.
Special patented techniques are employed in the assembly of larger Trackballs to reduce noise and vibration in the operation of the product, increasing the performance and feel of the Trackball in the majority of installations.
Cursor Controls recognise the breadth of customer requirements and aim to provide an effective solution for all applications. As such, there are several different types of trackball in the Cursor Controls range, each utilising different technology to meet individual customer needs. The following information provides a brief overview of the device options currently available:
- Mechanical Tracking
- Optical and Infrared Tracking
- Laser Tracking
- Z-Axis (Third Axis Control)

Mechanical Tracking (P, K, R and F Ranges)
Optical and Infrared Tracking (O and L Ranges)
|Optical and Infrared Tracking|
Laser Tracking (X Range)
Z-Axis (Third Axis Control – Z Range)
|Z-Axis (Third Axis Control)|
|Z-Axis (Third Axis Control) is available in conjunction with the Cursor Controls X25, X38 and X50 units. The Z-Range of trackballs provide the conventional X and Y axis cursor outputs via ball movement along with offering all standard features of the X Range and the addition of a Z Axis control wheel surrounding the ball.|
