Ultimate Control with Euchner's HKB Handwheels

Product Announcement from Euchner-U.S.A., Inc.

Ultimate Control with Euchner's HKB Handwheels-Image

EUCHNER electronic handwheels are manual pulse generators used primarily for positioning of axes on CNC machinery. Our unique "magnetic detent" provides years of reliable wear-free operation. EUCHNER now offers a pushbutton by pressing the handwheel shaft in the axial direction.  As a result the digital output OUT is set.  The handwheel pulses are not affected by the pushbutton function.
