Ps2 Joystick Control Lever Breakout Sensor





KY-023 Analog Joystick Dual Axis XY Joystick Module is a quality Joystick Module. It can be used to sense movements in 2 directions(axes).  Dual Axis Joystick also has an inbuilt switch that can be activated by pressing the stick. Directional movements are simply two potentiometers – one for each axis. Pots are ~10k each. With the help of this KY-023 Analog Joystick Dual Axis XY Joystick Module, you can measure position coordinates on the X and Y axis by moving the “hat”. KY-023 also contains a switch that is press-able by pushing the “hat”. Arduino Joystick also contains a switch that is press-able by pushing the “hat” down. Similar to the XBOX controller. 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 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. The KY-023 Analog Joystick 2 Axis XY Joystick Module is made up of two passive potentiometers (variable resistors) and a push-button and therefore can be used at any standard voltage level. KY-023 Analog Joystick Dual Axis XY Joystick Module is similar to the ‘analog’ joystick on PS2 (PlayStation 2) controllers. The joystick also has a push-button that could be used for special applications. When the module works, it outputs two analog values and a digital value. The 2 analog outputs represent the location of the two potentiometers and the digital output represents if the button has been pressed.
