The A-174 module outputs 2 control voltages generated by a high quality (ALPS made) spring-loaded X/Y cross potentiometer (the joy stick). For each output the voltage offset (zero setting) can be adjusted.
Each output is equipped with 2 LEDs for positive/negative display of the output voltages.
If the spring is removed for one direction the joy stick is no longer spring-loaded for this direction (as the spring is destroyed when removed this cannot be re-established !).
