3-axis Closed Loop Joystick
The MC1000e-J joystick controller is designed for coarse
micron level positioning of our 800 and 7000 series actuators,
manipulators, and stages.
The joystick control is proportional from slow to high through the travel
range of the joystick motion. A two-position rocker switch is conveniently
located on the top of the controller. Use the left / right and front
/ back motion of the joystick to control X and Y, and twist the top knob
of the joystick clockwise / counterclockwise to control up / down for
Z-axis adjustment. The rapid setting is set to maximize speed
(1.7 mm/second) when the joystick is moved to its farthest position from
center. The slow setting is set to
maximize resolution (0.2 Ám, 30 Ám/second).
Polarity switches on the junction box allow the joystick motion to be set
to match the output of the device being driven. This feature ensures
intuitive interaction between the joystick operator and the operation. The controller uses encoder feedback from the motor to drive the device. This encoder coupling enables the use of the
DR1000 digital readout
repeated positioning requirements.
The MC1000e-J uses a wall mounted power supply as its source for clean DC
power. All cables are shielded and a central ground lug is located on the
junction-box to ensure noise-free operation during sensitive
