New joystick from CH Products

CH Products has introduced the CJ Series joystick, an ergonomically designed multifunction handle purposely designed for safety critical hand-operated applications. Featuring non-contacting Hall effect technology for long-life performance and in one or two axes configurations, the CJ Series' compact size, reliability and high functionality are ideally suited for off-highway and construction vehicles and machinery, the company said.

The CJ Series is a multifunction handle featuring configurable top and bottom faceplates that can be customized for specialized machines requiring high switch content. This modular design provides flexibility and cost effective solutions for high or low volume motion control applications, the company said. User defined options include toggle switches, momentary or maintained pushbutton switches, proportional miniature joysticks, LED's and rocker switches.

The new joystick is ergonomically designed to minimize operator fatigue while maximizing functionality and safety, according to the company. Safety critical configuration options include a person-present "deadman" lever, capacitive proximity sensor, directional guide feel and redundant Hall effect outputs which provide more than 10 million lifecycle performance.
