JC1500 Rugged Single Axis Contactless Joystick

JC1500 Rugged Single Axis Contactless Joystick

Penny + Giles announces the release of a new single axis joystick controller design that enables use in heavy duty applications without compromising on smooth proportional control. The JC1500 joystick utilises contactless rotary position sensor technology combined with a rugged, low profile design.

The joystick provides reliable and accurate output signals – and includes a second output to enable error checking of the system integrity. The JC1500 is intended for use in the off-highway specialist vehicles market – particularly where reliability and strength are paramount e.g. Aerial Work Platforms.

The JC1500 joystick complements the existing range of JC150 potentiometer track joysticks and has the same panel mounting details – allowing replacement or upgrade with no panel modifications. The new joystick is designed to share the same range of handles and grips used in the JC150 and JC6000 models.
