SAE J1939 Compatible Joystick For Heavy-Duty And Off-Road Use

Posted by Industry News on

Megatron Hand Joystick TRY54

The TRY54 multifunction joystick from Megatron (Germany) was developed for operation of heavy-duty applications. It was designed for up to 10 million movement cycles.

According to Megatron, the handling minimizes the risk of operating errors, and, due to its installation depth of less than 60 mm, the joystick can be integrated into construction machines or forklifts, where space is usually limited. The company assembles the functional units individually on request: Up to eight buttons can be integrated into the front panel of the joystick, as well as thumbwheels, mini joysticks, LEDs or knobs.

The product has been designed to meet the technical requirements and features a CAN Bus based SAE J1939 interface as supported by commercial vehicles. Redundant, non-contact Hall sensors are provided. The joystick is SIL-2 compliant and therefore suitable for functional safe systems.

The multifunction joystick also features a dead man's lever and a trigger switch, which can be assigned further functions. All actions can be performed with one hand, without changing hands. This reduces the risk of operator fatigue and errors.


  • SIL 2 compatible - Reliability through redundant Hall sensors
  • Withstands axial loads up to 1780 N with up to 10 million movement cycles
  • Low installation depth for space-saving positioning in operator landscapes

Arduino-Due-Based USB Gateway With Two CAN Bus Ports

The Due Core is a compact version of the Arduino DUE. It integrates all peripherals required for the MCU, and all GPIO are connected to 2.54mm connectors. As a standard MCU core, the board has the following features:

  • Compact size: All components are put on a 54 x 58mm 4-Layers PCB. All IOs are connected to a 116-pin 2.54 standard connector.
  • Easy to use: All IOs are connected to 116pin 2.54 standard connector. It requires only a 5 VDC power supply to make it work.
  • Stable design: High-quality 4-layer PCB layout, two 5V to 3.3V LDO onboard, one for digital and one for analog processing. Separate AVCC and AGND, to ensure optimum analog performance.
  • Easy to set up the development environment: Uploading sketches through standard 6-pin UART interface, standard Micro usb connector, full use of existing resources.
  • User-friendly design: Rich LED status indication, two onboard buttons, one is for MCU reset, and one is for Flash Erase. Unique jumper erase protection against the flash erased by mistake.
  • Rich resources: All IOs are available for the user. The onboard I2C EEPROM is designed to compensate for the shortcomings of the standard SAM3X8E, which has no built-in EEPROM.

The jCOM.DUE.CORE-B board is powered either by the USB port connection (either the programming or native USB) or through an external power supply supporting an input voltage of 7 to 36 VDC.
