J7 Ergonomic Joystick for Tight Spaces-Image

elobau sensor technology Inc. introduces an ergonomic single axis joystick, the series J7. The J7 joystick was developed primarily for installation in the armrests of off-highway vehicles. The design combines a high level of robustness, safety and reliability in a very small space. It is able to fully utilize these strengths under high loads and high-use applications.

Similar to other elobau joysticks, the J7 features reliable non-contact sensor actuation. The J7 utilizes a magnet that rotates around a Hall Effect sensor at joystick's pivot point. This technology provides IP67 class protection for all the onboard electronics.

The non-contact technology ensures a longer service life, guaranteed to four million cycles (friction brake: >2 million cycles). The joystick travel limit has a maximum deflection of +/- 25º. The J7 joystick operates in a range from -40ºC to +85ºC (-40ºF to +175ºF) and can have an output voltage of 0.5-4.5 VDC proportional or ratiometric.
