CH Products introduces the ergonomic CJ Series multifunction handle joystick designed for safety-critical, hand-operated off-highway and construction applications including cranes, loaders, and excavators. Featuring noncontacting Hall-effect technology for improved performance and offered in one- or two-axes configurations, the compact CJ Series features configurable top and bottom faceplates customized for specialized machines requiring high switch content. The modular design provides a flexible solution for high- or low-volume motion control applications. Environmentally sealed for protection against the ingress of dust and liquids, options include toggle and pushbutton switches, proportional miniature joysticks, LEDs, and rocker switches. Natural contours and reachable pushbutton locations minimize operator fatigue, while safety-critical options include a person-present deadman lever, capacitive proximity sensor, directional guide feel, and redundant Hall-effect outputs.
