Analog Joystick (37 Sensors kit) Description
A joystick made from two potentiometers at right angles to each other. Analog output in both x and y directions. Push knob down for momentary switch. Knob included with the module.
Also called: joystick, mini dual axis joystick, KY023.
Found in kits: 37 sensors, 45 sensors.

Analog Joystick Specification/Notes:
• Voltage: 3.3V to 5.0V (No active components with voltage limits, so using other voltages are possible.)
• LED: none
• X Potentiometer: 10 k ohm, return-to-center (a few are 5 k ohm)
• Y Potentiometer: 10 k ohm, return-to-center (a few are 5 k ohm)
• Z switch: momentary SPST, pulled to +Voltage on some modules. Active low. Tactile.
• Size: 25mm X 35mm
There are a number of different sources for these modules. Not every module that looks similar to the ones here behaves exactly the same. Check the specific module that you have for differences in function, voltage levels, pinout, and inactive/active states. Some modules have been found to have incorrectly labeled pins and even poorly soldered components.
Button press (Z switch) is a bit difficult to do without making a substantial change to the X and Y values with the pots centered, and impossible with the pots in some positions. Joystick X and Y output should be close to half of the supply voltage when the joystick handle is centered (at rest).
The unpopulated R5 on the module tested would be the location for the pull-up resistor for the button. If needed, this can be populated with a 10kohm 0805 SMT resistor.
