Industrial Trackballs

Trackballs are responsive, user friendly and rugged pointing devices consisting of a ball housed in a socket containing sensors to detect rotation of the ball about two axis, similar to an upside-down mouse.

If you are looking for reliable trackballs for your industry, APC Technology’s industrial trackballs are available in a variety of specifications to suit a wide range of demanding applications in the defence sector, including indoor and outdoor applications.

The ergonomic design of trackballs promote maximum operator efficiency by significantly minimising keystroking movement and reducing stress typically encountered when operating human-machine interfaces. Unlike a mechanical mouse ball that rolls along the desk surface, a trackball is situated to the top or side. The user can control the on-screen pointer by rotating the ball in two dimensions without physically moving the mouse. As a result, a trackball has less arm and wrist movement than a regular mouse, making it easier to use and reducing RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury).
