Penny+Giles announces the release of a new single axis joystick controller design that enables use in heavy duty applications without compromising on smooth proportional control. The JC1500 joystick utilises contactless rotary position sensor technology combined with a rugged, low profile design.
The joystick provides reliable and accurate output signals - and includes a second output to enable error checking of the system integrity. The JC1500 is intended for use in the off-highway specialist vehicles market - particularly where reliability and strength are paramount e.g. Aerial Work Platforms.
The JC1500 joystick complements the existing range of JC150 potentiometer track joysticks and has the same panel mounting details allowing replacement or upgrade with no panel modifications. The new joystick is designed to share the same range of handles and grips used in the JC150 and JC6000 models.
