Hall-Effect Joystick


J.R. Merritt’s new PRO-6H Hall-effect joystick offers the same heavy-duty mechanical construction as its popular PRO-6, enhanced with the improved life cycle of a non-contacting Hall-effect proportional output device. This single-axis joystick with excellent resistance to EMI, has standard proportional 0.5 to 4.5 VDC output with optional custom-engineered PWM circuits. 

The rugged 10mm diameter handle shaft allows for a large variety of optional handle configurations, including triggers, rocker switches, push-buttons and thumb wheels. The PRO-6H features a smooth, field-adjustable friction brake with positive center detent for applications where speed must remain constant under continuous shock and vibration. Mechanical interlock is available. The PRO-6H is suitable for use on scissor lifts, aerial work platforms, bucket trucks, cranes, agricultural, mining and forestry equipment.
