Joystick provides fingertip positional control
Curtiss-Wright Industrial Groupcontact supplier
The JC2000 is a compact joystick controller for precision fingertip control applications where safety and long, trouble-free life are primary requirements.
Penny and Giles has launched the all new JC2000 compact joystickcontroller for precision fingertip control applications wheresafety and long, trouble-free life are primary requirements.
TheJC2000 is available in one-, two- or three-axis configurationsand can be supplied with three handle styles, two of which can befitted with a pushbutton switch in a choice of five differentcolours.
Typical applications include powered wheelchairs,disabled mobility vehicles, robotic teach controllers,co-ordinate measuring machines, medical and CCTV equipment,professional camera controls and radio or infra-red chest-packs.For these applications the JC2000's compact size, lowoperational force and high reliability are ideal.
The innovativecontactless design uses Hall effect sensors, meaning there are nomoving parts in the sensing system of all three available axes,effectively eliminating flexing wires that can cause failure dueto fatigue.
For super critical applications the single anddual-axis units are available with two independent outputs ineach axis.
This new model offers a top mounting flange that iscompatible with the Penny and Giles JC200 inductive joystick, butwith a below-flange depth of only 31mm.
The competitively pricedJC2000 also features an impressive environmental specificationthat includes sealing to IP65 above the panel, operatingtemperature of -25 to +70C, a shock level of 40g and EMC immunityof 100V/m.
The JC1200 paddle joystick available from Curtiss-Wright utilises non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology for long-life integrity of the output signal.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s Industrial division has introduced the JC8000, a new heavy-duty electronic joystick controller that has been specially engineered with a number of high-strength features to make it suitable for applications in physically demanding working conditions such as skid steer loader controls or where operators traditionally use hydraulic joysticks.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s Industrial division, with regional support from Italian distributor Leane International, has supplied Penny Giles joystick controllers and rotary position sensors to Brescia Antincendi International for use on the company’s second-generation tunnel firefighting and rescue vehicle, which has been designed for use in the thousands of kilometres of tunnels found in Italy and especially by the French/Italian Mont Blanc tunnel Fire Brigade.
The NRH300DP from Curtiss-Wright is a no-contact, rotary position sensor that offers the optimal combination of performance, safety and cost.
Curtiss-Wright has announced that its Industrial division has expanded the functionality of its R-net multi-module control system for rehab-type powerchairs with the introduction of the R-net Gyro Module from PG Drives Technology.
