Newbury Park, California ‚â€“ Micronor‚â€™s MR190 Universal Manual Pulse Generator/Handwheel (MPG) is the world‚â€™s first MPG to offer both A/A‚â€™/B/B‚â€™ differential line driver and A/B pull-up quadrature outputs in a single unit. No longer does a CNC machine manufacturer, control panel fabricator, distributor or service center need to stock 3 or more handwheel models because of the non-standardized interface requirements of different manufacturers and models of CNC systems, PLCs and teach pendants.
An MPG is a common accessory found on CNC machine tools. It is a manually controlled rotary handwheel that the machine operator uses to move a tool incrementally along an axis. The MR190 provides 100 detent positions per revolution and outputs one A/B quadrature pulse cycle per detent or ‚â€œclick‚â€. The quadrature outputs tell the machine both the number of incremental steps to move and direction. The MR190‚â€™s intuitive operation, tactile feedback and ease of interface is ideal for use in all types of teach pendants, control panels, motor drives, position control systems and electronic instrumentation.
MR190‚â€™s universal nature comes from the user-accessible DIP switch used to configure both power supply options (+5V or +12VDC) and A/B pull-up interface options (either Standard 2K ohm or FANUC-type 330 ohm pull-up resistors) It is also the first handwheel offering a modern, efficient industrial connection scheme ‚â€“ based on the proven Phoenix Contact COMBICON screw-down wiring plug and pin header system. The heavy duty unit incorporates a metal housing, metal knob and rated IP50 (dust protected).
End User LIST Price is $199 with OEM volume discounts available. Small quantities are available from stock. Lead time for larger quantities is typically 3-4 weeks ARO. Micronor also offers a broad range of handheld teach pendants which incorporate the MR190 universal handwheel.
