[Resolved: actually batteries] CNC pendant Jog wheel failing

The Jog wheel on the controller seems to be failing in the positive feed direction. A new one has been ordered, but is a couple weeks out. A slight work around, use the keyboard controls to jog passed your desired position, and then use the controller to jog back in the negative direction.

We have a couple of old ones “for parts” we can try to swap out the jogwheel on

Resolved the issue tonight – it turns out the problem was actually low batteries. Apparently that can cause either encoding skips or perhaps transmission issues? Unclear, but I replaced the batteries when it got so bad that it was actually disconnecting every 30 seconds or so. Now it works fine!

Thats awesome. Thank you for thinking to try the batteries, slipped my mind.
