Curtiss-Wright New Hall-Effect Roller

The new JC050 is a proportional thumb-operated roller for use in joystick grips and other in-cab human-machine interfaces.

The roller utilizes non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology that eliminates contact wear and provides for long-life integrity of the output signal, giving rise to a minimum operating life of 3 million cycles.

A robust, return-to-center mechanism provides movement over a range of ±37°, with the thumbwheel having an option of a lever profile to ease operation. A compact mechanical design means the required under-panel space is just 23mm.  View product specifications here.
