A multi-axial position sensor assembly for a joystick in which sensor/magnet pairs are positioned orthogonally on concentric gimbal rings such that each sensor and corresponding magnet pivot in relation to each other as a result of joystick movement. The sensors produce a reference output voltage when the joystick is centered and the sensors are aligned with the magnets. As a magnet rotates in relation to a sensor, the sensor produces an output voltage which is proportional to the angle of rotation and which has a polarity dependent upon the direction of rotation relative to the centered position.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
