The XL-VNSO Compact joystick was developed specifically for heavy-duty applications in the Mobile Equipment market. The XL-VNSO is capable of supporting multi-function handles and able to withstand continuous duty and rough handling. Two mounting styles are available, drop in and below the panel.

In applications where space is limited, customers benefit from the various possibilities available in this versatile design.
