YJS/YJP/YJC TWO AND THREE AXIS JOYSTICK WITH SIGNAL, POWER OR CANBUS OUTPUTS

DESCRIPTION

Two and three axis proportional joysticks can be used in a large variety of applications where is necessary to have a simple and reliable user interface to control construction machinery.

• YJS (with signal outputs, available also in ratiometric version) can only be used together with a logic control unit (PLC) or a power control device (PWM driver).
• YJP (with PWM outputs) can directly control hydraulic devices (pumps, distributors, dump valve) becoming often the only control unit of the whole machine.
• YJC thanks to its inputs, can collect a large numbers of control signals and transmit them through a CANbus network.

Designed and specifically conceived to reduce the amount of installation work, our joysticks are manufactured with top quality parts. The control electronics is located inside the housing and to assure extreme tightness.

Joystick movements are derived from the measurement of the magnetic field produced by permanent ferro magnets; the measurement is taken through redundant Hall effect probes. This kind of probes are not subject to deterioration.

The configuration and calibration easiness makes these joysticks suitable for different applications.

The push button panel is completely customizable.

Here are some of the available options for the three models:
• “virtual cross” to forbid diagonal movements.
• linear or parabolic output curve.
• standard or capacitive dead man switch.
• adjustable dead band, independently for each semi axis.
• THUMBWHEEL, to have third proportional axis.
• Outputs lock if the hand-grip is not in neutral position at joystick turn on.
• Dump valve output with delayed turn off, to avoid high pressure spikes in the hydraulic crcuit.
• Offset to compensate the hydraulic distributor dead band.
• Auxiliary output activated with logic and command levels user defi ned (software configurable).
• Two or three speed sets allow to regulate speed according to the machine confi guration.
• Combination with only one proportional PWM output with many directional ON/OFF outputs
• Tracked machines driving function, to directly control two pumps of an hydraulic driven machine with the up/down and left/right joystick movements (virtual 45° axis rotation).
• Dead man switch functionality active only with joystick in neutral position.
• Auxiliary inputs/outputs can be active high or active low (software configurable).

All the joystick have a FAULT output which is driven low if a failure occurs. The LEDs on the bottom side helps the user to check the correct joystick functionality and connections.

Analog current outputs are feedback controlled. ON/OFF outputs are protected against short-circuits.

All the joysticks have a serial port to connect PRG2 serial programming keyboard (provided apart) to configure and calibrate the product.

All the joysticks are provided by default with 50 cm unplug-gable cable but is possible to require a customized wiring
