Penny & Giles JC4000

Hall Effect Joystick and Grip.

The Penny & Giles JC4000 joystick base and accompanying range of grips have been designed for use in Aerial Work Platform (AWP) applications, with options for single- or dual-axis operation making the product suitable for both scissor lifts and booms. Three, dual-axis gates are available – round, square or plus – while the ergonomically-designed grip offers the choice of one or two top switches, as well as a person-present lever, meaning the unit can be used across a wide variety of machines. These carefully-chosen configuration options offer an optimal combination of performance and cost.

Non-contacting, Hall effect sensing technology ensures smooth operation and a long life – in excess of 6 million operating cycles. – while dual electrical outputs on each axis, plus a center-reference signal, enhance overall system safety. The range of the electrical outputs can be set to either 10-90% or 20-80% of a 5V regulated supply, with the polarity of each adjustable to suit the host electronics.

The joystick can be fitted to an enclosure in both under-panel and above-panel configurations, and provides sealing of the enclosure to IP67. In addition to a robust mechanical design that is resilient to high shaft load, shock and vibration, the operational integrity of the unit is assured in electrical fields of up to 100V/m.

Alternative grip options to those described above are available.
