Robust finger-tip joystick controller
22 July 2009
Penny + Giles has introduced a robust, finger-tip JC3000 joystick controller for various applications, including Radio Remote Controls and general off-highway vehicle applications. The compact joystick comes with a range of user-defined features, enabling OEMs to integrate it with safe and reliable control systems.
The JC3000 joystick controller has been designed for applications requiring fingertip control, where strength and reliability are important. It is robust, having been manufactured using mainly cast metal components and OEMs can benefit from its long operational life.
It can be specified as a dual or single axis controller and features optional mechanical detents in both axes, which allow operators to determine the angular position of the joystick lever.
The JC3000 is available with up to five switched outputs per half axis, or with an analogue potentiometer output with switched centre or directional signals. With the switched option, the outputs relate to the mechanical detents on the joystick and the switches activate sequentially as the joystick lever is operated from centre to the end stop in all directions.
The joystick lever can accommodate a choice of many different handle types, so the controller can be tailored further. If customer specific handle shapes or designs are preferred a ‘no handle’ version can be selected with either a plain or threaded operating rod as a means of interfacing with the joystick.
