Meeting the requirements

Joysticks are sophisticated components in the man-machine interface.

At Danfoss, we develop and update our range continuously to meet the growing functional and safety requirements of today’s mobile machines.

From time to time, this means phasing out older products to make way for the newest technology and ergonomic designs.

To support customers during the phasing-out period, we continue to supply these joysticks as legacy products.

The following legacy joysticks are currently available:

JS6000
  • Contactless hall effect or long-life potentiometric sensing
  • Redundant sensors
  • Single or dual axis
  • Outputs
    • Analog
    • CAN(J1939, CANopen)
    • CAN+(J1939)
    • PWM(High Current)
  • Up to IP66/67 environmental sealing above panel & IP66 below panel
  • Grip options
    • A-grip

  • Offshore oil and gas applications
    Offshore oil and gas applications

    Making up nearly 30% of global crude oil production, upstream Offshore Oil and Gas activities are some of the harshest operating environments on the planet. Drilling in waters up to 3,000 meters deep requires equipment that is reliable and safe to maximize operating productivity and prevent unexpected downtime.

  • Onshore oil and gas applications
    Onshore oil and gas applications

    Making up the majority of the world’s total oil production, onshore Oil and Gas activities require a great deal of flexibility and scalability. A variety of oil reserve types, and typically a much greater number of oil wells per reserve than offshore, onshore equipment needs to be flexible and robust.
