Curtiss-Wright Industrial to Launch New Bluetooth and IR Joystick Module

Thursday 8 September 2016

RehaCare 2016, DÜSSELDORF, September 28 – October 1
Hall 6, Booth 6/E41

Christchurch, U.K. – Thursday, 8 September, 2016 – Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division today announced that it will be attending the RehaCare International Trade Fair & Conference in Düsseldorf, Germany, and showcasing a range of medical mobility products, including the recently-launched CJSM2-BT joystick module from its PG Drives Technology family brand.
As one of four established specialist business units of Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division, PG Drives Technology has been designing, manufacturing and marketing sophisticated mobility control systems for over 40 years and is now one of the world's foremost suppliers of these products.
New at this show will be the company’s recently-launched R-net CJSM2-BT, a Bluetooth- and infra-red-enabled version of its popular CJSM2 Joystick Module. Integrated Bluetooth technology enables wheelchair users to control personal computers, Android tablets, iPhones, iPads and other smart devices from the joystick module. The infra-red communication is widely used to remotely control household appliances such as TVs, DVD players and multi-media systems, as well as some home-automation equipment.
Also on display is the R-net LM, a Lighting Module that provides a compact and cost-effective solution providing 12V or 24V control of lamps.  Lighting and turn-signal indicators are mandatory for most European markets and their safety requirements, which are based on the automotive industry, are tough to meet. Nevertheless, the LM complies with all relevant standards and includes features such as constant-brightness control of 12V lamps and turn-signal fault detection. The module is an ideal complement to the ISM-8 or Complex Seating Module (CxSM), when lighting control is needed in conjunction with high-specification seating.
To complete its impressive suite of mobility products, the company will also be showcasing its other LED and LCD Joystick modules for the R-net system, add-on modules for R-net, and the VR2 range of control systems, which set new standards of performance and value for mainstream wheelchair controllers.
