OTTO Controls joystick JH hall effect

The JH Series Joystick is designed around the rugged mechanism of a traditional 4-way hydraulic joystick, but it utilizes contactless Hall Effect technology for increased life and more dependable performance in the field. This combination provides performance and features never before available in an electronic joystick. The JH series uses OTTO’s field-proven dual magnet configuration found in OTTO’s HPL Linear Output Hall Effect switches. The Hall Effect sensors are fully protected against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI and RFI) up to 100V/M. Programmable sensors with built-in magnetic temperature compensation logic ensure consistent and repeatable operation. The JH series is designed for maximum flexibility in features and in tactile feel. A wide variety of input and output configurations are available to satisfy different applications. The modular electronic package can be configured for both standard and custom I/O requirements including CANbus and other output options available.

The JH Hall Effect Technology Joystick works well in numerous commercial and military applications.
