Curtiss-Wright JC1200

Control Panel & Arm Rest Non-Contacting Paddle Joystick Control.

The Curtiss-Wright (Penny and Giles) JC1200 paddle joystick builds on the success of the potentiometric-based JC1200 and is ideal for use in control panels and armrests found in industrial trucks, agricultural equipment, and construction machinery, where cost-effective, long-life operator controls are essential.By using a long-life bearing system and non-contacting Hall-effect sensing technology, the JC1200 has achieved a long operating life of 25 million cycles while providing functionality that is smooth and easy to operate.
