Hand-Operated Joystick Device With SAE J1939 Protocol Output
The Curtis-Wright WM-580 CANBus joystick, available under the Williams Controls product brand, is designed for off-highway vehicles.
Williams worked directly with equipment operators on product designs under the supervision of a kinesiologist. The resulting grip and control options are designed to minimize user fatigue and repetitive stress risk, while maximizing comfort, said the company.
The input motions are limited to 20° in both the x- and y-directions and 27° in directions off axes (corner to corner). Additional operator inputs may come by way of pushbuttons, thumbwheel, or trigger.
All outputs are available via the CAN Bus based SAE J1939 interface. According to the supplier, the fully potted circuit board provides trouble-free performance in high-moisture environments, as well as superior resistance to shock, vibration and chemical exposure. Watertight electronics are encapsulated to IP67.
With over fifty variations of the joystick, the product has intuitive grips and control button configurations, which meet many application needs.
SAE J1939 to RS232 & USB Gateway With 9-Pin Deutsch Connection Cable
The jCOM.J1939.SER gateway is a high-performance, low-latency, wireless vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with an RS232 or USB port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network. An SAE J1939 cable, suited for a 9-pin Deutsch connection, is included with the gateway.
The gateway supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). It is also supported by an extensive programming interface for Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including full C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.
