The z-axis mechanism of the miniature Hall effect joystick knob means that it can rotate horizontally up to 60°. Z-Axis options include detent, friction hold or spring return to center. Its compact design is the ideal solution where space is limited and precision control is required, while its robust construction is suited for demanding applications.
The JHT joystick has been tested to five million cycles in all directions with no degradation of performance. The Z-Axis and/or pushbuttons have been tested to one million cycles. Various gating options are also available. The JHT Z-Axis electronics are sealed to IP68S and can withstand EMI/RFI per SAE J1113 specifications. The JHT Z-Axis has numerous applications and is ideal for construction equipment, unmanned vehicles, hydraulic controls, industrial vehicle controls, medical and surgical equipment, remote control boxes and surveillance cameras.
