Joystick Combines Compact Size With Functionality

The multiaxis JC400 joystick has been developed for remote-control systems where a combination of compact size and functionality are important. Designed for use with an electronic controller, it offers proportional or digital fingertip control in up to three axes. It's also available with analog or digital outputs. The analog version can be configured to provide fault-detection signals to the controller. The digital model offers three switches in each direction, and a detent mechanism can be included for supplying tactile feedback when each switch is actuated. Installation of the JC400 in both new and retrofit applications is made easy through a choice of mounting flange and the option to include threaded inserts. Handle options include Z-axis control handles. And, it has an expected life of over 5 million cycles. Contact the company for pricing information.
