JC4000 Hall Effect Industrial Joystick

The JC4000 Hall-Effect industrial joystick and accompanying range of grips have been designed for use in Aerial Work Platform (AWP) applications.

  • Designed primarily for Aerial Work Platforms
  • Single- or dual-axis
  • Ergonomic grip
  • Top switch and person-present lever options
  • Hall-effect sensor technology
  • Choice of voltage outputs
  • Dual outputs on each axis
  • Center-reference signal
  • Rated for 6 million cycles
  • Under- or above-panel mounting
  • Enclosure sealing to IP67
  • EMC performance to 100V/m

The JC4000 joystick base and accompanying range of grips have been designed for use in Aerial Work Platform (AWP) applications, with options for single- or dual-axis operation making the product suitable for both scissor lifts and booms. Three, dual-axis gates are available – round, square or plus – while the ergonomically-designed grip offers the choice of one or two top switches, as well as a person-present lever, meaning the unit can be used across a wide variety of machines. These carefully-chosen configuration options offer an optimal combination of performance and cost.

Non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology ensures smooth operation and a long life – in excess of 6 million operating cycles. – while dual electrical outputs on each axis, plus a center-reference signal, enhance overall system safety. The range of the electrical outputs can be set to either 10-90% or 20-80% of a 5V regulated supply, with the polarity of each adjustable to suit the host electronics.

The joystick can be fitted to an enclosure in both under-panel and above-panel configurations, and provides sealing of the enclosure to IP67. In addition to a robust mechanical design that is resilient to high shaft load, shock and vibration, the operational integrity of the unit is assured in electrical fields of up to 100V/m.

Alternative grip options to those described above are available.

The Penny & Giles product range comprises a broad selection of joysticks, sensors and solenoids for use on commercial vehicles and industrial equipment.

The products are the legacy of the Penny & Giles company founded in 1956 and acquired by Curtiss Wright in 2002.

The present-day product range includes: linear and rotary position sensors; LVDT and RVDT transducers; joysticks; studio faders; digital panel meters; and solenoid actuators for a wide range of industrial motion control applications.

Their joystick controls are suitable for commercial vehicle applications for both on- and off-highway use. These include construction and agricultural vehicles, material handling and other specialty vehicles. They are also suitable for use with industrial equipment such as robotics. Their finger-operated joystick controllers are designed for the smooth, precise control of critical functions in a variety of industrial applications where a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) is required. They also have rugged joystick controllers are designed for the more demanding installations found within operator cabs for off-highway vehicles. A wide range of linear position sensors, tilt sensors, rotary sensors, linear displacement transducers and linear potentiometers that offer distinct advantages in reliability, stability and compactness.
