New low profile joystick handle for chest packs and robotics equipment

Penny + Giles is pleased to announce a new handle for its popular JC2000 joystick controller. Designed specifically for remote operation chest packs and robotics equipment, the HL handle measures just 57mm in height providing OEMs with a low profile that enables greater flexibility of design and increased durability of equipment.

The new handle, which can be used for one, two or three axis operation, has been created for units that have limited protection around the joystick or which require multiple controllers within a small surface area. By reducing the profile, damage to the joystick can be minimised should the unit be mishandled (for example if a chest pack is dropped during operation). It also reduces the chances of operators leaning on other handles during operation causing un-necessary wear and tear.

Its low profile, combined with a below mounting flange depth of only 31mm, enables designers to meet increasing demand for smaller, more compact control units. Sealed to IP65 with hidden fixings ensures protection in environments where dust and other particles may be present.

Penny + Giles' JC2000 is a reliable, proven joystick controller based on non-contact Hall-effect technology. Used for precision fingertip control in radio/infrared chest packs and robotic teach controllers and for more than five years, it provides smooth and accurate control where safety and long life are primary requirements.
