Does the wireless pendant have more utility than the wired USB controller?

I'm not sure which wired controller you are referring to

The "Remote Handheld Keypad" sold by CAMaster. With 20 programmable buttons and a 15' USB cable. I'd ordered one with my Stinger II, but I'm wondering if this new wireless one might be a better option.

I can't say what would be better for you, that's why I posted a video so that you can compare and make a decision

Yeah, Iíd watched it. And Mickís The wireless version has less keys but their function depends on modes. And it has the really cool spin dial.

Iíve read the WinCNC manual, and watched some YouTube videos, but never actually having used it, Iím pretty sure I canít make an intelligent and/or really informed choice. Iíll speak to tech support on Tuesday.

Might I suggest instead of just talking with tech support, you reach out and contact multiple individuals who are using these in their shops on a regular basis? I think you will find far more pertinent info in regards to what would best fit your needs this way. I am not referring to an open forum but phone calls that are invaluable to reaching a far more informed decision on the subject. I have found so many on this forum to be extremely giving of their time on a one on one basis that has proven invaluable to our getting to where we are today.


Hope this helps!

It does! People with website links might be getting a call tomorrow.If they don't have time to chat, that's fine.
