A new version of USB Pendant with a 2.8" display the ShuttleRU_STM32. It has the same basic controls as the other pendants. It has the same outside wheel shuttle and inner-encoder and 17 buttons, one used for the Shift function, which allows at total of up to 32 functions to be defined to make using your machine easier.
The Pendent uses a 32-bit ARM™ controller a CortexTM - M3 STM32F103** with built-in USB interface, creating a simple interface and improve performance.
The cases, knobs and wheels are made from aluminum only!
There are two main differences from the previous version of the ShuttleRU_LCD pendant.
The first, is it has a larger 2.8"- display.
The second, and most importantly the screen layout can be customized by the user in a specially written program called ScreenDesigner it allows you to build multiple screen layouts and create bargraphs and DROs, LEDs where ever you want on the screen.
The program (similar to Screen4 Mach3) is easy to use and has many options for output elements.
The elements are arranged on the screen by dragging and dropping. And a grid is present to ease the aligning of elements on the screen. The grid also aids in placing elements using coordinates and helps with the use of scales.
The generated files are loaded into the memory card of the pendant using the SD card reader or directly by the program.
You can create any number of screens and switch between them by touching the screen using Gestures of up and down movements on the screen. This can be done while using the pendant to control your cnc machine. Each screen can display any number of items that can be selected from a list of 20 user defined Items. All elements have an order numbers, and can be further configured in the plugin.
!!!The new budget version of the ShuttleRU_STM32!!!
I have founded the new budget version - the ShuttleRU_STM32v.2 in plastic case.
It differs from the previous version by a smaller display (it was 2.8" and now it is 2,4"), and the number of the buttons is less than in the previous version (17 and 15 accordingly) only.
The basic functionality has not changed!
You can create your own label using CorelDraw version 12. I recommend starting with one of the CorelDraw version 12 template files below and making any desired changes then be sure to save the file as a Version 12 CorelDraw format. Also be sure not to change the overall format of the label just the fonts, colors and background, otherwise it may not fit the Pendant. This way I will be able to open and print the label. You can Download one of the CorelDraw template files by clicking on the Item you would like to use and then you can just send to me that file or modify it and send to me the version 12 modified file so I can print it and put it in the Pendant.
