Using the built in hotkeys on the number pad you can select the joint to move followed by the direction. Example select 1 to move J1 then the + or - button to move it. Here I’ve used a small programmable keypad and a usb extension cord to make a jog pendant that utilizes these hotkeys. This allows the operator to jog the machine while away from the control panel.
Cool! Where did you get the pendant?

- I picked this one because it was inexpensive and looks pretty slick. It did not come with documentation on how to program the keys so I had to do a little digging to find the software to do so. If anyone uses it, here is a link for the software: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iHbQq7_J33aYNmdFaIypZWhxm1wMJiQ_/view
