A pivotal product release, Sanwa Denshi’s latest JLX series of joystick has been redesigned and enhanced in numerous areas for greater overall accuracy, input stability performance and product longevity. (This variant features a dust washer, no mounting plate and no shaft cover - perfect for fightstick and cabinet mounting solutions that don't require a plate).

As a special feature of this release - This JLX joystick will ship with an authorized "JLX" foil sticker, made with permission from Sanwa Denshi by Murakumo Arts. 

The extensive improvements feature the following benefits:

  • The joystick main body/base is now manufactured from polyacetal resin compared to nylon. This equates to this main joystick component being less susceptible to temperature and humidity influences and is therefore more robust and stronger.
  • A thicker metal washer has been created so as to reduce excessive rattling during movement of the shaft.
  • The joystick body has had a further redesign and adjustment of the pivot receptacle shape, which will lead to less rattling compared to the JLF during operation.
  • The new pivot, being previously made of polyacetal resin, has been remade in nylon which produces higher resistance to abrasion and greater movement proficiency for smoother motion.
  • The microswitch PCB, previously manufactured from paper phenol, is now less likely to warp and distort due to being created out of composite epoxy material (CEM-III).
  • The JLX will ship as standard with the white JLF-P-W actuator which is about 0.12mm thicker (0.24mm in diameter) than the usual black JLF actuator JLF-P-5. This white actuator (which is fitted to the silent JLF), has a higher stability moulding profile than the black actuator, reducing variations in the accuracy of inputs. Testing with professional E-sports gamers and arcade location tests was generally positive with good serviceability being reported.
  • The JLX has the GT-8X restrictor gate fitted as standard equipment, immediately opening up the ability of modification utilising Sanwa’s own high quality alternate restrictor inserts (GTN-VI, GTN-Y, GTN-R, GTN-B).

 

Please note the following important compatibility information:

  • The JLX microswitch PCB is compatible with the JLF.
  • The JLX has mounting compatibility with the JLF.
  • The JLX pivot is incompatible with the JLF.
  • The JLX joystick body is incompatible with the JLF body.
  • The JLX metal washer is incompatible with the JLF.
  • Mixing combinations of parts made of the same material will have poor frictional attributes and lead to rapid wearing (ie. JLF pivot and JLX body, JLF body and JLX pivot is not recommended)
