Penny & Giles JC400

Multi Axis Fingertip Controller, Compact Size & Functionality.

The Penny & Giles JC400 was developed for use in applications where compact size and functionality are important. With 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.
