This colour changing illuminated joystick with crystal bat top handle is the perfect choice for those customers looking to give their arcade machine or project the “WOW” factor. This joystick looks great when illuminated. Each joystick comes complete with a clear crystal bat top handle, 1 x clear dust cover, 1 x cable for connecting to a 12V power source and 1 x 5-pin cable for connecting the joystick (Up, Down, Left, Right, GND) to an IPAC keyboard encoder. The restrictor gate on the joystick can be set to 2, 4 or 8 way by simply undoing the screws and sliding to the required position.
This joystick looks very cool when lit up and changes colour. The colour of the illumination changes from white, blue, purple and yellow and also flashes through the various colour options. This colour changing illuminated joystick is lit up by the LEDs on the PCB, which are located underneath the mounting plate. The LEDs shine up through the transparent shaft cover, which in turn gives the clear crystal handle a glowing/flashing effect.
Please take a look at the video below to see an example of the illumination effect.
Illuminating the joystick: To illuminate this joystick, simply connect the included cable (red/black harness) to the PCB on the joystick and connect the bare ends to a 12V power source. 12V can be taken from a spare molex connector on a PC power supply (Yellow = 12V, Black = GND)
Connection to an IPAC2 or IPAC4 To connect the joystick to an IPAC2 or IPAC4 for the function of the joystick is very straight forward. A 5 pin cable is included with the joystick. Simply screw the end of the wires into the screw terminals on the IPAC board (Up, Down, Left, Right and Ground GND)
