APEM, Inc. announced the launch of the JC series, a multi-axis Hall effect joystick.  Designed specifically for keyboard integration, the JC series measures just 26mm below panel making it the ideal solution where space is limited and precision control is required.  Well suited applications include security and surveillance cameras, medical devices and measurement systems.  

The JC series reportedly utilizes proven Hall effect technology to provide up to 5 million lifecycles of control. With over a dozen handle options, the JC series may be configured with up to three axes and two push buttons.  The JC series features a precision spring centering mechanism that provides an optimal return-to-center voltage of 80mV.  This series is intended for clean environment indoor applications with an operating temperature ranging from -25°C to +80°C.

The series will replace APEM’s best-selling HFX Side Plate series.  The JC series features identical mounting cut-out dimensions and is backwards compatible to all HFX Side Plate series’ applications.
