Curtiss-Wright JC1210

Hall Effect Paddle Joystick, 5 Million Cycle Life.

The Penny & Giles JC1210 builds on the success of the JC1200 and incorporates the same robust design with exceptional life and now offers the option of overpress and latch features at the ends of travel. This joystick utilizes non-contacting, Hall effect sensing technology for the long-life integrity of the output signal. Operating feel has been an important part of this new development to make this unit as smooth and easy to operate as possible throughout a 5 million cycle-life to the start of overpress. The hall effect sensing eliminates contact wear and provides safety functionality via dual outputs, which can be set to positive or negative ramps, or a combination of both. Electronic robustness is assured with the sealing of the internal PCB to a rating of IP67, while a joystick to panel rating of IP67 can be achieved.
