Curtiss-Wright JC025/030

Single Axis, Low-Power, Fingertip Rocker Switch, Joystick Control.

This is a non-preferred rocker switch; we recommend using the Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles) JC040 proportional, hall-effect rocker.

This data is being held in our product archive to provide product support for existing users of the JC025 single-axis fingertip rocker switch. For new applications, we recommend using the JC040 proportional, hall-effect rocker.

The JC030 single-axis, low-power, fingertip rocker allows system designers to provide control of movement and speed in a single, low-profile unit. Developed for applications where compact size and minimal above panel height is paramount, the JC030 has a very low profile whilst still providing precise, fingertip control in one axis. The use of this rocker in a control panel allows system designers to develop very low-profile assemblies, whilst still maintaining the functionality of a much larger single-axis joystick.
