ITAC Systems Powered by Pretorian Panel X Fascia Mount Devices


ITAC Systems Powered by Pretorian 38/50mm Panel-X Fascia Mount Trackballs and Panel-J Fascia Mount Joystick are rugged brushed stainless steel fascia panel mounted pointing devices each fitted with three vandal resistant stainless steel buttons. Designed for demanding industrial environments, Panel-X builds on the proven design of the panel mount 38/50mm trackballs. The Panel-J Joystick is especially suitable for use in aggressive environments where high levels of airborne and process contaminants (dust, saline solutions, liquids, lubricants etc) would render other pointing/input devices inoperable; and also in clean rooms and medical applications where extensive use of cleaning solutions make other pointing/input devices nonviable.  (A shock-transmission plate can also be fitted to either type unit to further protect it against abuse.)
