Customer reviewsHigh Build Quality and Very Functional Pendant
If you are interested in seeing a demonstration of the functionality of the pendant, checkout the numerous videos on YouTube. I bought the pendant to replace a Shuttle Pro I have used for years to control a Sherline Lathe and Mill CNC conversion running Mach3. Installation of the pendant was plug and play. I had it up and running in less than 5 minutes. Ergonomics are such that it is easy to hold the pendant and access selector knobs and the rotary encoder wheel. The E-Stop switch is easy to reach and is a twist to reset design. The USB cable is more robust than a typical USB cable, has good strain relief at the pendant end, and is expected to holdup well in a shop environment. The plastic enclosure is solid, but I recommend buying the protective boot to provide that layer of extra protection in the event of a fall from the bench. I find the LCD display to be very useful. In addition to pendant setup information, the LCD can provide real-time information on axis position and RPM. With three modes for moving an axis it is easy to accurately position an axis. You can even zero an axis and switch Mach3 screens without having to go to the keyboard.
