Curtiss-Wright launches new AWP joystick

By Lindsey Anderson06 September 2016

Curtiss-Wright has launched the JC4000, a joystick designed specifically for use in an aerial work platform (AWP).

The joystick base and accompanying range of grips – from the Penny & Giles brand family – provide options for single- or dual-axis operation making the product suitable for both scissor lifts and boom applications. Three dual-axis gates are available – round, square or plus – while the ergonomically designed grip offers the choice of one or two top switches, as well as a person-present lever, meaning the unit can be used across a wide variety of machines.

The JC4000 employs a long-life bearing system and non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology to achieve an impressive lifespan of over six million operating cycles. It is powered from a 5Vdc supply voltage and offers analog output options of 0.5-4.5V or 1.0-4.0V.

Other key features of the JC4000 include: Load performance of 50Nm horizontal, 1100N vertical and 6Nm rotational; Dual outputs on each axis; Center-reference signal; Under- or above-panel mounting; Enclosure sealing to IP67; EMC performance to 100V/m; and MTTFd greater than 100 years.
