Elobau Sensor Technology Inc. introduces its J6 line of industrial joysticks, designed for heavy-duty use on various vehicles and equipment, including all types of machinery, cranes, forklifts, construction, oil & gas, forestry, agricultural and materials handling devices.  Compatible multi-function levers are available with one, two or three pushbutton operation to suit most any application.      J6 joysticks are offered in standard analog (Hall Effect sensor) or digital (Reed sensor) measurement styles, with voltage, current, PWM and CAN-bus output versions, all designed to resist EMC interferences, even to the demanding specifications of the auto and other industries.  Housed in IP67 protection class enclosures, these joysticks are available in multiple mechanical configurations.  Each has a static load capacity of 750N in both the X- and Y-axis and can withstand a maximum actuating force of 12N.  The units feature multiaxial zero actuation or cross gate.  Other gate and reduced angle designs available on request.      Standard angular operating range is ± 25º in the X- and Y-axis.  A mechanical life of 2 x 106 is typical.  Operating temperatures range from –25º to +75ºC (~ 9º to 168ºF).Elobau joysticks are available with or without a multi-function lever mounted.  The literature now offered includes complete part number specifications to build the joystick for most any application.   • Short circuit-proof with analogue version (short circuit duration: unlimited). • The J6 has a 6/8/10 or 12 PIN Molex 5557 connector. • The actuating force can be adapted according to the knob. The static loading capacity (max. 150 mm from the point of rotation) is 750 N in the x and y axis, and • 500 N in the z axis. Mechanical life: 2x106 operations.
