Robust, hand-operated 12-bit programmable Hall-effect joystick

19 April 2010

Penny + Giles has introduced a robust, hand-operated 12-bit programmable Hall-effect JC1500 joystick for single-axis operator control of cranes, aerial work platforms and other off-highway vehicle applications. The compact joystick comes with a range of user-defined features, enabling OEMs to quickly and efficiently build safe and reliable control systems.

Because the JC1500 joystick is designed with cast metal components it provides superior strength and reliability. It can be supplied with a wide range of handle and grip styles to suit specific applications that may, for example, require the increased safety and functionality offered by finger-operated triggers, buttons and rockers.

To support unique, customer-specific handle shapes or design requirements, the JC1500 is also available in a ‘no handle’ version with a plain operating lever provided for interfacing with the joystick handle or grip.

The JC1500 features a 12-bit programmable Hall-effect sensing system with dual outputs. The joystick lever’s sensor is embedded at the pivot mechanism to ensure maximum output sensitivity over the full lever travel.
