Simplifying Motion Control

X-JOY3 Series: Programmable 3-axis joystick

We recently released the X-JOY3, a new and improved joystick. If you are looking for the T-JOY3, please see the T-JOY page.

  • Controls up to three axes, each with programmable sensitivity and velocity profile
  • Compact bench-top design for manual control with or without a computer
  • Eight programmable keys for functions like storing and recalling positions
  • Intuitive ASCII protocol simplifies complex automation tasks
  • Custom versions available

The X-JOY3 is ideal for XY or XYZ applications requiring manual control. The joystick is intuitive to use, and the keys are pre-programmed with commands to home the devices, save positions, and switch between coarse and fine positioning. Each key can also be reprogrammed to send commands to any daisy-chained device. After programming, the joystick can be operated with or without a computer attached.

The X-JOY3 is compatible with all Zaber motor controllers and devices with built-in controllers. When connected with other X-Series products, power can be shared between all devices in the chain, reducing the number of power supplies needed.

Zaber's positioners with built-in controllers, stand-alone controllers, and joysticks are divided into three series: the T-Series, the A-Series, and the X-Series. Please refer to our Series Reference Table for more information.
