CH Products Industrial Joysticks and Trackballs

The HFX Series III joystick is a heavy duty, Hall effect controller developed for demanding operator control applications requiring a rugged, yet compact hand-operated positioning device. Available with several ergonomic multi-axis handles and utilizing only five square inches of surface area, the HFX Series III joystick is ideally suited for off-highway, enclosed cabin applications. Striking the perfect balance between size and durability, widely used vehicle applications include forklifts, agricultural and forestry vehicles, landscape maintenance vehicles and inventory lift platforms.

Configuration Options

0V to 5.0V
0.25V to 4.75V
0.5V to 4.5V

USB
Universal Serial Bus provides USB 1.1 interface, no driver is needed.

CANbus
Provides J1939 interface and requires Sensor Output Option (0.25V - 4.75V). Contact technical support for configuration chart.

Analog Deadband
Assures return to center voltage

Center Detect
Produces an electrical HI signal when stick is moved off center and produces an electrical LO signal if the sensor output voltage deviates from range (<0.5V or >4.5V).

Dual Decode
Provides center detect function and monitors dual sensors. If the sum and the difference of the sensor outputs vary by more than 9%, the circuit becomes electrically LO. Requires dual sensors and output option 0.5V to 4.5V.

Joyball
Cursor emulation available for USB or Sun.

Voltage Regulator
Used when input or output voltage is greater than 5V or when bipolar output is required. Contact technical support for available configurations.

Discrete Output
Electronic "Switch Stick".

Proximity Sensor
A "deadman" safety switch that works by means of capacitive sensing, eliminating the need for a mechanical lever.
