The JoyStick Module PS2 Breakout Sensor is very similar to the ‘analog’ joysticks on PS2 (PlayStation 2) controllers. Directional movements are simply two potentiometers – one for each axis. Pots are ~10k each. This Joystick Breakout Sensor also has a select button that is actuated when the joystick is pressed down. With the help of this Joystick Module, you can measure position coordinates on the X and Y axis by moving the “hat”. It also contains a switch that is press-able by pushing the “hat”.

Game Joystick Sensor 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 another direction till 0V.

  • High-quality rocker, long life, stable performance.
  • Two analog outputs, all the way to digital output.
  • The module uses a 5V power supply, the original state of X, Y read voltage of 2.5 V.
  • When pressed at the arrow direction, voltage increases, maximum is 5 v, at the opposite direction of the arrow, the voltage value decreases, the minimum is 0 v.

Needed some extra stock items... I did use 1 in a little build project and it turned out nice, the tension in the springs was perfect, the responce of the resistors very smooth and even, no glitchyness.

Great joysticks!

I've used several of these so far, and been happy with all of them. I've connected them to an Arduino's 5v, gnd, and analog inputs. The only issue that I've seen is that they don't center exactly on 512--they center somewhere around 490 to 525 ish. But they move smoothly and evenly across the range.

Smooth gradation of values - see code...

I'm not sure why some folks are having issues getting a smooth sample of values across the stroke of the joystick's axis. It is important to note these are not intended to be maxed out to an extent position anyway. You can only move about half way or a little more to the edge before it is overwhelmed. So perhaps people are just not moving slowly. Got me. But here is some code I used to test mine with. No issues. I hope this helps someone.../* micro joystick test sketch / atomkey 2019 doesn't test for the push button feature - that's simple ~does test for the analog read on the x and y axis I coded this for folks that have said there are only three gradations of measure they can get. This runs fine on my Arduino and generates a smooth gradation from 1024 max to 512 center and then to 0 minimum. Keep in mind the joystick isn't intended to be moved to its extreme extents. The boundry is not at the outer edge. 4 wires from the joystick to the arduino 2 for the axis 1 for the ground and 1 for the +5v */int sensorPinX = A0; // input pin joystick x axisint sensorPinY = A1; // input pin joystick y axisint sensorValueX = 0; // variable x axisint sensorValueY = 0; // variable y axisvoid setup() { Serial.begin(9600);}void loop() { // read the x,y values from the sensor: sensorValueX = analogRead(sensorPinX); sensorValueY = analogRead(sensorPinY); Serial.print(sensorValueX); // show results Serial.print(" "); // on serial monitor as Serial.println(sensorValueY); // two columns of data delay(150); // for even smoother (stable) results you can perform a // mean sample run. That's where you sample the signal // n times over t seconds and take the average of the reads.}
