Multi-Axis Hall Effect Joystick Steps Up To The Plate

APEM launches its JC series, a multi-axis Hall effect joystick designed specifically for keyboard integration. The JC series measures 26 mm below panel, making it viable where space is limited, and precision control is required. Applications include security and surveillance cameras, medical devices, and measurement systems.  


The JC series relies on proven Hall effect technology to provide up to five-million lifecycles of control. With over a dozen handle options, the component may be configured with up to three axes and two pushbuttons. It features a precision spring centering mechanism that provides an optimal return-to-center voltage of 80 mV.
