Curtiss-Wright JC050

Proportional, Thumb-Operated, Hall-Effect Roller – Joystick Grip.

The Curtiss-Wright (Penny & Giles) 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 the 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.
