Product description: Optoelectronic Handwheel MHU

The MHU series handwheel is a real all-rounder, robust and with good haptics

With a knob diameter of 60 mm, the handwheel allows precise and fast setpoint adjustment. The handwheel does not stop abruptly when the crank or knob is released during a fast turning movement, but runs for a short time. The mechanical detent is clearly visible on the knob in 100 dashes. The input device is available in black or silver, with a resolution of 25 or 100 pulses per revolution. An optional line driver ensures reliable signal transmission. The variety of electrical outputs makes the MHU series compatible with FANUC and MELDAS specifications.
The low installation depth of <10 mm allows the realization of manual input terminals in a flat design. The product design and IP64 rating ensure reliable operation even in dirty environments. The handwheel is preferably used to control machine tools such as CNC and milling machines, as well as test benches.
MEGATRON quality means that the haptic characteristics, such as detent torque and shaft backlash, show only minor changes even after many 100,000 operations.
