Curtiss-Wright JC400

Multi-Axis Fingertip Controller, Compact Size & Functionality.

The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles) JC400 was developed for use in applications where compact size and functionality are important.

With an analog output, the JC400 offers proportional fingertip control in up to three-axes and features installation flexibility by using different forms of mounting flanges independent of the function joystick.

The JC400 has been designed for maintenance-free operation throughout an operating life of greater than five million operations.
