Description

The Joystick module is similar to analog joysticks found in gamepads. It is made made by mounting two potentiometers at a 90 degrees angle. The potentiometers are connected to a short stick centered by springs.

Output: This module will output roughly 2.5 volts from both outputs when in its resting position. Moving the stick will cause the outputs to change from 0v to 5v depending on its direction. If you connect this module to an Arduino through the Tinkerkit Shield, you can expect to read a value of roughly 512 in its resting position (expect small variations due to tiny imprecisions of the springs and mechanism) When you move the joystick you should see the values change from 0 to 1023 depending on its position.

Module Description: This module features two 4k7 Ohm linear potentiometers, two standard TinkerKit 3pin connector, two signal amplifiers, a green LED that signals that the module is correctly powered and two yellow LED whose brightness depends on the values output by the module.

  • TinkerKit Rotary potentiometer

      TinkerKit Rotary potentiometer
    A Potentiometer is a commonly used variable resistor. Turning the knob, you vary the output voltage between 0 and 5V. This value is sent through the middle pin of the pot. Output: This module outputs 5v when turned in one direction, and 0v when turned in the opposite way. When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you can expect to read values between 0 and 1023. Module Description: This module features a 4k7 Ohm linear potentiometer, a signal amplifier, the standard TinkerKit 3pin connector, a green LED that signals that the module is correctly powered and a yellow LED whose brightness changes according to the position of the potentiometer.
