Penny + Giles Introduces JC1500 Rugged Single-Axis Contactless Joystick Controller

Penny + Giles, a business group of Curtiss-Wright Controls and designer and manufacturer of joysticks, sensors and solenoids, has introduced the JC1500, a new single-axis joystick controller designed for heavy duty applications such as off-highway vehicles, where maintaining smooth proportional control is essential.

The JC1500 features contactless, Hall-effect rotary position sensor technology to provide reliable and accurate output signals and benefits from a second output to enable error checking of system integrity.

The rugged, low-profile design of the JC1500 (53mm under-panel depth) complements Penny + Giles’ existing JC150 range of potentiometer joysticks. For easy and modification-free replacement or upgrade, the JC1500 also uses the same panel mountings and is designed to share the same range of handles and grips as JC150 and JC6000 models.

Additional features include an IP69K rating on the sensor assembly; spring-to-centre or friction-hold lever action; lock and detent features; 5Vdc or 9-30Vdc supply; dual-channel output with optional ramp directions; analogue (Vdc) or digital (PWM) outputs; and an operating range from -40°C to +85°C.

Typical applications for the JC1500 include specialist off-highway vehicles and aerial work lifts and platforms, especially where reliability and strength are required.
