The Deopfer A-174-4 generates several control voltages and a gate signal controlled by a spring-loaded X/Y cross potentiometer (AKA; Joystick). The control voltages for ‘X/Y’ are controlled by the ‘X/Y’ position of the joystick in the usual way. The third control voltage, ‘Z’ is controlled by the rotation of the spring-loaded joystick knob. The gate signal is generated by a button at the center/top of the joystick knob. As an additional feature four control voltages are generated that are assigned to the quadrants of the Cartesian coordinate system. These quadrant voltages are derived from the X and Y voltages by means of a special algorithm.
Please note this is a BIG joystick, around 7cm from the module front so not ideal for folding/travel cases.
Power: + 50mA (+12V) / -20mA (-12V)
