Heidenhain is introducing the HR 1120 electronic handwheel that facilitates workpiece set-up on positioning units and in automation applications. Despite its compact dimensions, the HR 1120 is robust and sealed to IP66, making it suitable both for portable and stationary equipment.
The mechanical detent with 100 positions per revolution provides very precise and exact control. The electrical output at TTL levels with differential signals as per RS-422 enables the device to be connected to many standard programmable logic controllers (PLC) and PC slot cards. Note that controls from Heidenhain use handwheels with expanded interface functions, which is why the HR 1120 cannot be connected to them.
