Penny + Giles Introduce Single-Axis Joystick

Penny + Giles, Cwmfelinfach, U.K.,  has introduced the JC1500, a new single-axis joystick controller designed for heavy-duty applications such as off-highway vehicles, where maintaining smooth proportional control is essential. The JC1500 features contactless Hall-effect rotary position sensor technology, which provides reliable and accurate output signals and benefits from a second output to enable error checking of system integrity.

The rugged, low-profile design of the JC1500 (2.1 inches under-panel depth) complements the manufacturer’s existing JC150 range of potentiometer joysticks. For easy and modification-free replacement or upgrade, the JC1500 also uses the same panel mountings and is designed to share the same range of handles and grips as the JC150 and JC6000 models.

Additional features include an IP69K rating on the sensor assembly; spring-to-center or friction-hold lever action; lock and detent features; 5Vdc or 9-30Vdc supply; dual-channel output with optional ramp directions; analog (Vdc) or digital (PWM) outputs; and an operating range from -40°F (-40°C) to 185°F (85°C).

Typical applications for the JC1500 include specialty off-highway vehicles and aerial work platforms and lifts.
