Difference between LAN and direct encoder connected pendant handwheels
#1
Hi All,
I have a query regarding the choice of pendant handwheel (MPG). We are used to have the handwheel which we connect to one of the encoder port on PMAC. But just found that the LAN based wired and wireless pendant handwheels are available. This will help in a bigger way as we can use one less of the encoder port.

So can anyone advice on the pros and cons of these two types.

Thank you.

Regards,
Raghav

It should be possible to set up an ethernet pendant, but it would not be easy.

Using the handwheel on an encoder port will probably be much easier to setup.

Is there an EtherCAT pendant you can use?
