Hello friends, has anyone tried to connect the WHB02 remote to linuxcnc? I would like to connect it to a qtplasmac. Before buying, I decided to ask on the forum. Thanks.

Googling for Linuxcnc and XHC WHB02 seems to show Aliexpress vendors selling it for LinuxCNC use (but possibly only in Hebrew!, which I can't read) but then most vendors on Aliexpress have no idea what they are selling, so I wouldn't necessarily read too much onto that.

I don't see any mention of it on these forums.

It might be safer to go with the known-supported WHB04, if you don't feel like being the guinea pig.

Thanks for the answer, the WHB02 costs half as much as the WHB04 and it has enough functionality for plasma cutting.
The WHB02 is similar to the remote controls that come with laser cutting machines.
I thought that maybe the same component xhc-whb04b-6 could be suitable for this remote.

It can almost certainly be made to work. You might have to modify one of the existing components, or it might just work as-is.

I think it's worth a try, I'll order it next week, and I will write here when I receive it.
I hope you will help me connect it to the qtplasmac. Thanks.
