NinjaKnobs - 3-dial/button Re-programmable CNC controller

Regular price $115.00

Updated 5/11/19

Currently supporting PathPilot® v2.1.6 (PLEASE UPDATE BEFORE ORDERING)  v2.2 patch will be coming soon!

Avoid costly crashes and tool breakages! Like a ninja, sneak up on your part with this handy widget.  Each rotary dial acts as a pushbutton also, and is re-programmable with 23 different built-in functions.  Designed, tested, and "just works" exclusively with Tormach Inc.'s PathPilot® mills with the provided installation patch.  Easy to install patch with no manual edits.

Out of the gate, the NinjaKnobs will control Feed Override, RPM Override, and Max Velocity sliders using the dials.  Pressing down on the dial will Start Cycle, Feedhold, and Stop.

Want to control something else?  Each knob is completely re-programmable, and retains your settings even after powering down.  

Dial Functions:  Feed Override, RPM Override, Max Velocity Override, Jog Override, X Step, Y Step, Z Step

Button Functions: Cycle Start, Feed Hold, Stop, Coolant on/off, Jog/Continuous, X Zero, X DRO Focus, Y Zero, Y DRO Focus, Z Zero, Z DRO Focus, Tool Number Focus, Step .0001, Step .0010, Step .0100, Step .1000

 ***With the new release of PP2.0, the pendant will ship with basic firmware (Override sliders, Start, Feed Hold, Stop, Coolant).  I've found most of the extra features have been hardly used.  If you need them please let me know and we will get them functioning for your pendant.

Either hang it on a hook or mount it to the spindle, you will be able to watch AND CONTROL your "cut recipe" at all times.

What's included:

NinjaKnobs controller w/ handle and 10ft USB cord

USB flash drive with Installation and patch instructions
