Is it possible to pilot a valve directly with an APEM joystick?You must use an intermediate board to adapt the voltage and supply the required current.
With a potentiometer joystick, how to get 0V as an output when on the center?To achieve this, you need to power it with -5V and +5V
What do we get with the ‘Dual Output’ option on a 4000 series joystickYou get 2 separated outputs, like there were 2 potentiometers per axis.
What means the ‘CT’ option for a potentiometric 4000 series joystick?Most joysticks are used at center ; this option introduce a ‘dead zone’ around the center. This option is standard on the 3000 series (Hall Effect).
For the 9000 series, what does ‘Mixed signal output’ stands for?Ideal for those applications whereby the method of steering is by controlling two motors. For example one motor uses X+Y signals and the other uses X-Y signals. This mixing is achieved by internally orientating the signals at 45 degrees to normal. Typical applications may be twin propeller boats, tracked vehicles, or wheelchairs.
