New Contactless Proportional Rocker
Thursday 20 April 2017
The new JC040 is a proportional rocker for use in joystick grips and other in-cab human-machine interfaces.
The rocker utilizes non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology that eliminates contact wear and provides for long-life integrity of the output signal, giving rise to a minimum operating life of 1 million cycles.
Electronic robustness is assured with the enclosure sealing rated to IP67. Two return-to-center operating options are available: a ±25° movement from center; or a ±20° movement with an over-press feature, which can be included in both directions of movement or just one, used to indicate a different mode of machine operation. In all versions, a compact mechanical design means the required under-panel space is just 21mm.
