Genge & Thoma AG introduced its series of joysticks for industrial and mobile applications with CANopen and SAE J1939 connectivity. The products address applications, including off-road vehicles and vehicle body applications.
The SK 60 joystick is a versatile product with several options with various haptic characteristics. The product is available in numerous configurations, with up to three axes depending on the handle. In the core of the joystick is a hall-effect sensor. In addition, the IP67-rated joystick comes optionally with a CAN Bus interface supporting the CANopen or SAE J1939 protocol stacks.
The SK197 joystick provides up to three axes based on potentiometer technology. The IP54-rated product also supports CANopen and SAE J1939. Therefore, it is suitable for remote control devices.
The SK212 multi-function joystick will operate under harsh environmental conditions. The IP65-rated product is appropriate for mobile hydraulics, agriculture, construction machines, and off-shore equipment. The joystick uses hall-effect sensors. Additional switches, thumbwheels, etc., can be applied. The product is available with CANopen and J1939 ports.
The Swiss company, established in 1958, exports about 90 percent of its joysticks. It has sales partners in many European countries, the U.S.A, Australia, China, Taiwan, and India. The company is a CiA member since 2017.
SAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator
The SAE J1939 starter kit allows you to monitor, simulate, and record any PGN as defined in the SAE J1939-71 Standard but also including diagnostic messages according to SAE J1939-73.
The starter kit was not designed to simulate specific diesel engines, but if you enter all PGNs that are being used, you can design and simulate any diesel engine.
Megatron introduced its TRY120 series of miniature joysticks with an installation depth of 26 mm. The onboard CAN Bus interface supports the CANopen and SAE J1939 serial protocols. With the TRY120 series, Megatron expands the TRY100 finger joystick series with a version for the operation in harsh environments. Both sets use identical geometries and thus allow a direct replacement. The [...]
The XD series of joysticks by Apem is a multi-axis hand grip controller engineered for demanding vehicle applications in harsh environments, and it supports the SAE J1939 higher-layer CAN Bus protocol.The joystick feature non-contacting Hall effect technologies fit for off‑highway vehicles and machinery. It measures 60 mm below the panel, yet resists horizontal loads of up to 400 [...]
SAE J1939 Joystick Is A Hand-Operated Hall Effect Controller Designed For In-Cab Vehicle Applications
The HJ series of joysticks by Apem (USA) are hand-operated devices for in-cab vehicle applications. They are CAN-Bus-connectable, meaning the joysticks support CAN Bus protocols such as CANopen and SAE J1939. They apply non-contacting Hall-effect sensors, and they are designed for up to five million usage cycles. The products provide several handle options. Typical applications include refuse handling trucks, snow [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
