Ultra-Precise Movement – Proportional Thumbwheels
APEM expands its range of proportional thumbwheels with a new, friction hold version.
Apem HR Friction Hold – PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
This new patented technology allows for ultra-precise movement while allowing the user to hold the selection in a set position.
The Apem HR series uses proven non-contacting Hall effect sensor technology, independent from the friction mechanism, providing a smooth and precise linear voltage output that does not degrade over time.
Therefore, this new thumbwheel is particularly adapted for speed control on a handle.
TWO VERSIONS TO FIT YOUR NEEDS
- One with 11 detents along the travel (1 at center and 5 on each side)
- Another with a center detent, smooth movement on each side and providing a feel of friction hold without detents.
Frontally sealed to IP68, the friction hold HR series is available with 2 actuator styles, a wide range of colors and optional backlighting.
