JC8000 Multi-axis Joystick

The JC8000 offers an extremely rugged joystick solution, with a wide variety of grip options. 

  • Extremely robust design for arduous applications
  • Center detent for enhanced return-to-center performance
  • Under-panel depth has been minimized to 78mm
  • Pivot-point position minimizes grip cable flex
  • Rated for 5-million cycles
  • Hall-effect sensor technology
  • Dual outputs with sense options
  • Electronics sealed to IP69k
  • Can be supplied as ‘base-only’
  • More functions, e.g. CAN interface, to follow
  • Multiple grip options

The JC8000 rugged joystick controller is designed for demanding operator control applications in off-highway vehicles, where extreme strength, reliability, and handle functionality are critical.

The JC8000 is supplied with a non-contact, Hall-effect sensing system for maximum operational life. The compact size, high lever strength and superb proportional control are ideal for applications in physically demanding working conditions – such as skid steer loaders controls.

The Penny & Giles product range comprises a broad selection of joysticks, sensors and solenoids for use on commercial vehicles and industrial equipment.

The products are the legacy of the Penny & Giles company founded in 1956 and acquired by Curtiss Wright in 2002.

The present-day product range includes: linear and rotary position sensors; LVDT and RVDT transducers; joysticks; studio faders; digital panel meters; and solenoid actuators for a wide range of industrial motion control applications.

Their joystick controls are suitable for commercial vehicle applications for both on- and off-highway use. These include construction and agricultural vehicles, material handling and other specialty vehicles. They are also suitable for use with industrial equipment such as robotics. Their finger-operated joystick controllers are designed for the smooth, precise control of critical functions in a variety of industrial applications where a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) is required. They also have rugged joystick controllers are designed for the more demanding installations found within operator cabs for off-highway vehicles. A wide range of linear position sensors, tilt sensors, rotary sensors, linear displacement transducers and linear potentiometers that offer distinct advantages in reliability, stability and compactness.
