Spain-based Industrias Lorenzo is widely respected amongst arcade cabinet enthusiasts for its attention to quality and solid construction. Among their popular line of US and European joysticks is the Compact Joystick.
Smaller Shaft, Unique Handle
The IL Euro Joystick features a longer 86.95(3.4 inches) battop design. By contrast, the IL Compact Joystick is 70mm (2.75 inches) high. For some, the shorter length contributes to a favorable shorter throw distance, great for twitchier retro arcade games. The balltop
- Fits wood and metal control panels.
- Unique battop/balltop hybrid design.
- Spring return-to-center.
- 4 or 8-way operation via actuator adjustment.
- .250" Saia Burgess microswitches.
- Available in 7 colors with matching shaft cover: Black, Blue, Green, Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow.
4 or 8 way Operation
The IL Compact joystick can achieve 4 or 8 way control simply by flipping the actuator. To adjust the actuator, remove the e-clip at the base of the joystick shaft with a small Phillips head precision screwdriver. Be careful not to lose the e-clip.
Note that 4 way operation is achieved by removing the ability for any two switches to activate simultaneously. This is not the same as a mechanically fashioned 4 way joystick.
.250" to .187" Conversion Wire Included
Industrias Lorenzo installs .250" Saia Burgess microswitches for most of their joysticks. Should your arcade cabinet use smaller 187" terminals, we include with your purchase an 8-pack of Female .250" to Male 187" Conversion Wire.
