The module is supplied with three integrated switches which provide the conventional left, middle and right button functionality found in commercial trackballs/mice. Alternatively, the number and position of the switches can be selected as part of a custom solution.
The unique aluminum construction provides excellent impact strength, electrical shielding, and environmental protection, making the trackball an all-round robust solution for the most demanding of military, marine and aerospace applications. High-grade stainless steel shafts and bearings ensure a solid and precise pointer control. The trackball module also includes the patent protected anti-vibration technology which ensures that only intended ball movements are transmitted to the host system (i.e. when the user’s hand is in contact with the surface of the ball). This feature eliminates any unwanted cursor motion resulting from ball movement caused by external shocks or vibrations.
The F50 Series trackball module can also be configured with various top plate styles providing options on ball tracking force and illumination for use in low light environments. The trackball module has been designed to be front of panel mounted as part of a rugged keyboard/console.
