The WM-580 CANbus joystick is a hand-operated device that offers single- or dual-axis control. During the design, Williams worked directly with equipment operators on product designs under the supervision of a kinesiologist. The resulting grip and control options are designed to minimize user fatigue and repetitive stress risk, while maximizing comfort.

The WM-580 CANbus joystick provides variable control over attached devices and mechanisms of off-highway vehicles. The inputs to thejJoystick are via motions in the X- and Y-directions. The input motions are limited to 20° in both the X- and Y-directions and 27° in directions off axes (corner to corner). Additional operator inputs may come by way of pushbuttons, thumbwheel, or trigger. All outputs are via the CAN J1939 protocol. A fully potted circuit board provides trouble-free performance in high-moisture environments, as well as superior resistance to shock, vibration and chemical exposure. Watertight electronics are encapsulated to IP67 and meet best-in-class life-cycle ratings.

With over fifty variations of the standard WM-580, Williams has intuitive grips and control button configurations which meet almost any application need.
