Cursor Controllers

Proven to meet the rigors of extreme use and abuse
Orbit ultra-rugged trackball and force-stick products have been proven to meet the challenge of extreme use and abuse far beyond commodity-type cursor controllers.

Orbit cursor controllers convert physical device movement into a series of electrical pulses by means of an encoding system.  The encoded pulses are then either sent to a display system that utilizes the raw data or pulses are converted to a standard electrical interface (i.e. PS/2) that transmits the control data to the system.

Used for precise positioning in diverse applications
Orbit’s cursor controllers are widely utilized for extremely accurate positioning applications. They have been embedded/integrated into our wide range of ruggedized keyboards as well as custom applications, for uses including:

  • Military radar, sonar, electronic countermeasure and weather system displays
  • Air traffic control systems
  • Manual inputs for navigation and control systems
  • Industrial graphic display and machine tool applications, and many others

Meet all specs for military, industrial and general applications
Because many of our basic/core products have been tested to military environmental and EMI/EMC requirements as stand-alone devices, we are able to ensure that all specifications are met for our customers’ military, aerospace, industrial and general-purpose applications.

Orbit military-grade cursor controllers are designed to perform under the most extreme operational and environmental conditions and require little or no maintenance. MTBF for Orbit military grade trackballs are experiencing 100,000 hours or greater.

Products are just a few of the many custom designs Orbit has produced.
