Multi-axis joystick

27 March 2019 Switches, Relays & Keypads

New from APEM is the JC series multi-axis, Hall-effect joystick. Designed specifically for keyboard integration, the JC series measures just 26 mm below the panel, making it ideal where space is limited and precision control is required. Well suited applications include security and surveillance cameras, medical devices and measurement systems.

The JC series utilises Hall-effect technology to provide up to 5 million lifecycles of control. With over a dozen handle options, it may be configured with up to three axes and two pushbuttons. The JC series features a precision spring centring mechanism that provides an optimal return-to-centre voltage of 80 mV. The product is intended for clean environment, indoor applications with an operating temperature ranging from -25°C to +80°C.

The JC series replaces APEM’s HFX Side Plate series, and has identical mounting cut-out dimensions and is backwards compatible to all HFX Side Plate series’ applications. Legacy HFX Side Plate series part numbers will be supported with no plans of obsolescence.
