OTTO JHS-F Friction Hold, Single Axis Hall Effect Joystick Range Details

Part of the OTTO Hall Effect Control Series, the JHS-F Joysticks are compact, with single axis friction. Ideal for construction equipment & off-road vehicle devices. The OTTO JHS-F Joystick lever does not return on release - Designed for use where the output controls speed or direction. KEY FEATURES • Compact Friction Hold Joysticks • Custom Options • IP68S Sealed OTTO JHS-F Hall Effect Joysticks provide excellent resistance with a proportional output & long mechanical life.


The OTTO JHS-F0001 is a single axis, friction hold joystick that was designed for the construction equipment and off-road vehicle market. The key feature of the OTTO JHS-F joystick is that the lever does not return to center when released. Designed for use in applications where the output is used to control the speed or direction of the machine or mechanism, allowing the operator to set the speed of movement to focus on steering or other tasks.

Favored for its compact size, strength and reliability, the JHS-F0001 is manufactured with non-contacting Hall Effect sensors; the electronics are sealed to IP68S. It offers excellent resistance to RFI and EMI per SAE J1113; standard 0.5 to 4.5VDC proportional output and a mechanical life of 500,000 cycles. Recommended Markets Include: Agriculture, Construction, Industrial, Material Handling.
