Discover our smallest MR actuator

With a diameter of 14 mm and a weight of just 8.2 grams, HAPTICORE 14 is our smallest rotary encoder. The actuator is designed as a thumb wheel. However, it offers versatile application possibilities due to different covers and gearing options.

The HAPTICORE 14 is designed for single-finger operation and the low base torque of less than 1mNm ensures comfortable operation, even during long-term usage.

HAPTICORE 14 products


Thumb wheel design

The HAPTICORE 14 is designed as a thumb wheel and despite its small diameter of 14 mm and its weight of just 8.2 grams contains the entire electronics and sensory system (hall sensor and magnetic ring).

For secure mounting, the HAPTICORE 14 is fixed in a cradle, which can be adapted to the available space within your product.

Push & tilt function

The HAPTICORE 14 encoder itself does not provide an integrated push function. However, a push function can be integrated by adding optional switches to the mounting mechanism.

Furthermore, also a tilt function can be added. This way, the HAPTICORE 14 offers you various possibilities for a multi-layered UI design.

Battery powered use

Whether stationary or mobile, the HAPTICORE 14 brings increased precision and efficiency to any application through freely programmable haptic feedback.

With the HAPTICORE 14, we have perfected the power consumption of our encoders to produce strong haptic feedback with only 5 V of power supply. This allows you to integrate it even into battery-powered devices, such as remote controls, handheld devices, and computer peripherals.

Haptic feedback & cover design

With a low base torque of < 1mNm and a maximum barrier torque of > 12 mNm at 400 mA coil current, the HAPTICORE 14 offers pleasant and highly accurate haptic feedback for single-finger operation.

In addition to the performance indicators, also the cover’s texture is crucial for the perceived haptics. The cover material and surface finish can be freely selected. The recommended cover diameter for the HAPTICORE 14 is 17 to 30 mm.

Our customer integration team will be happy to assist you in selecting the right cover and fine-tuning the haptic feedback.

Cover mounting

The HAPTICORE 14 includes 3 lashes with screw points for easy and secure cover attachment. In addition to this fastening mechanism, other variants are possible.
