HR Series Infinite Wheel

Building on the experience gained with the HR series this version meets the needs for greater precision and comfort when driving special vehicles in difficult environments (Dust, humidity, cold, etc).

Integrated on the joystick or control panel, the infinite wheel function replaces the encoder with a quadrature output, making it easier to browse menus or use tools with precision. The end user gains a control tool that is reliable, ergonomic and easy to handle: a service life of over one million cycles, a flush-fitting design with infinite scrolling (24 detents per rotation) and a soft to maintain maximum visibility even when working in dusty or poorly lit environments.

MAIN FEATURES

  • 360° roller
  • Hall effect technology
  • Customisation: Backlighting, colour, outputs
  • IP68
