Penny + Giles has enhanced its family of JC120 single axis joystick controllers with a new friction mechanism. It allows the operator to set the joystick lever to a specific position for driving a control system at a constant speed without the need to continue to remain holding the lever. Also available is a center detent position that provides the operator with an indication of the joystick lever’s middle position. Another new feature is a 7-position detent feel giving an indication of the progressive movement through the joystick lever’s operating angle. The life of the new mechanical features is in excess of 1 million cycles. These new features are designed to provide mechanical indication of setting the speed of a control system.
