Joystick provides fingertip positional control
Curtiss-Wright Controls Industrialcontact 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.
Penny and Giles has introduced the NRH275DR, a rotary position sensor featuring a slim, low-profile sensor housing and a separate permanent magnet assembly. The sensor is suitable for specialist vehicle applications in extreme and hostile environments where installation space may be limited.
Fleet Service’s Fleet Care division is using door-lock and shot-bolt solenoids in its commercial vehicle security, cash-in-transit and cash-and-valuables-in-transit vehicle conversions.
Penny and Giles has supplied its ICS100 linear potentiometers to provide positional feedback for Xylem Flow Control’s electro-hydraulic actuators, which are used to control choke and control valves used in the oil and gas industry and for water and wastewater treatment applications.
Penny and Giles, with support from its Swedish distributor AB Elwia, has supplied SRH280DP rotary position sensors and TPS280DP throttle position sensors to the Chalmers Formula Student team, which competes in the Formula Student racing car series.
Dynapac has selected the JC6000 joystick controller from Penny and Giles for use in the cab control system of its CA5000 range of soil compactors. The primary function of the joystick in this application is to control speed.
