Joystick Module measures position coordination on the X and Y axis by moving the thumbstick on the top of the module. the module also has a tactile switch and it is triggered by pressing the thumbstick down.
The X and Y axes are two 10k potentiometers that control 2D movement by generating analog signals. When the module is in working mode, it will output two analog values, representing two directions. This module uses the 5V power supply, and the value, when reading through analog input, would be about 2.5V, a value will increase with joystick movement and will go up to a maximum of 5V; the value will decrease when the joystick is moved in other direction till 0V.
This module finds application to control the movement of a robot, positioning an electronic object, etc. it is compatible with any device that supports reading analog and digital input like Arduino board, Draco board, microcontroller, etc.
- Long service life and stable performance
- Standard interface and electronic building blocks
- Widely use in Arduino DIY projects
- Cross rocker as a two-way 10K resistor, with the rocker in a different direction
- Easy breadboard connection
