Penny & Giles JC6000

Rugged Multiaxis Joystick Controller.

The Curtiss-Wright (Penny & Giles) JC6000 rugged, CANbus joystick controller is designed for demanding operator control applications in off-highway vehicles and other human-machine interfaces (HMI), where strength, reliability, and grip functionality are important.  Available with single- or dual-axis configurations and can be supplied with non-contact, Hall-effect sensors or long-life joystick potentiometer. The compact size, high lever strength and superb proportional control are ideal for applications which include operator controls on a wide range of off-highway vehicles.
