The mechanism is extremely low-effort, requiring a maximum input force of only 0.2 lbs, and is internally spring-loaded to return to the center, or null, position. The joystick is internally coupled to 3-independent and redundant electronic devices on each axis for unsurpassed safety and reliability.
The J-Series input device can be positioned for either left hand or right hand operation. The input control enclosure measures 5.0” x 4.0” x 2.5” and weighs only 1.5 lbs.
The software flexibility within the system provides four (4) unique control algorithms developed by EMC specifically for joystick steering. These allow “on-screen” programming in the Display by the dealer and evaluator to maximize the clients input strength and range of motion.
- The flexibility of the software allows for a selectable Gas & Brake input direction, and sensitivity curves, that can be programmed by a Certified Dealer or professional driver rehab specialist to suit each individual.
- “Speed-sensitive” steering feature is designed to reduce over-steering scenarios at high speeds.
- “Audible” feedback to assist the driver as to the rate of steering change is selectable on-screen.
- “Sensitivity” of the joystick can be tailored to you with multiple Joystick Band adjustments that are selectable on-screen.
