Curtiss-Wright adds to joystick family


Curtiss-Wright has announced the addition of a single-axis paddle joystick to its JC1200 family. The JC1210 incorporates latching and overpress functionalities, offering multiple mounting solutions in a single product.

Extending the range of the JC1200 joysticks, key features of the new product are an under-panel depth of 9mm – for minimal installation space – a spring-loaded return-to-center paddle movement, a colored ergonomic soft-touch grip, IP67 protection of internal electronics, and two mounting-panel fixing variations.

Developed by firm’s Penny & Giles brand, the JC1210 paddle joystick features an additional 10° of travel at both ends of the axis, which can be specified by machine designers and end users for either latching or overpress functions – or a combination of both – to meet system requirements to hold functions at full speed/float.

A Curtiss-Wright spokesman, said, “JC1210 has already been rated to 5 million cycles (to start of overpress/latching) while providing functionality that is smooth and easy to operate. A soft-touch colored insert area of the paddle – which has a choice of nine colors – increases operator comfort and decreases the likelihood of finger-slip during operation.”

The option of paddle overpress and/or latch, electrical terminations, output sense, output voltages and paddle soft-touch colors means the JC1210 paddle joystick will be launched with over 600 variations.
