CH Products Industrial Joysticks and Trackballs

The HFX Series IV joystick is a heavy-duty, Hall effect controller designed for use in high operating force, hand-operated applications requiring reliable, unfaltering positioning control. Available with several high-function handles and in single, dual or triple axis configurations, HFX Series IV joysticks are custom configured to meet the exacting requirements of harsh environment applications. Typical uses include construction equipment, forestry vehicles, military vehicles, as well as refuse handling trucks.

0.5V to 4.5V

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

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.

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".

Friction Clutch
The joystick does not mechanically return to center, maintains present position. Requires "round" limiter plate option.

Directional Guide Feel
Provides a positive tactile feel for "x" or "y" axis positioning.

Proximity Sensor
A "deadman" safety switch that works by means of capacitive sensing, eliminating the need for a mechanical lever. Available for Stock Grip, Multifunction, and Multifunction Oval Joystick configurations.
