    I can’t understand how to connect it. Is there any instruction?

    It is very straight forward.

    -Screw the antenna cable with USB transceiver
    -Connect USB transceiver to your PC USB port.
    -Turn ON the Wireless Handwheel
    -Transceiver will be recognized as USB HID device by the operating system.
    -PlanetCNC TNG will automatically enable "Wireless Handwheel" option in settings.

    Steps on how to configure various jogging modes are described in user manual of PlanetCNC TNG V2.

    Does this one work? It is from the link that you gave in the Similar Threads

    It does not matter what is written there, the principle of their work is exactly the same.

    Sounds like it'll work all CNCs then. You should let the seller know.

    Perhaps it is possible to detect which one it is? Software could then work only with genuine.

    The eBay/Amazon/chinese wifi pendants will not work with PlanetCNC's proprietary controllers and signals.
    They are designed for Mach3 and come with supporting software/macros to function properly, when/if they do.

    My understanding is PlanetCNC have kindly engineered a product that works on their architecture. Might want to support those who strive to provide functional equipment instead.

    I would gladly support the PlanetCNC, but not for 200 euros.

    That's the price for tested, quality and small qty manufacturing nowadays. I realize this isn't exactly cheap, but hey man, "it works" (priceless if you ask me).
    By all means, have those Chinese kit with random & noisy highfreq causing your machine to over travel and crash at the slightest interference around your shop, and you'll feel that 200+ euro pretty quick.
    If you can't afford it then fair enough, reach out and try your luck - ask for a discount. Don't go about flashing cheap products to make a point, not cool bro :/

    I suspect that this is also made in China. The difference is only in the inscriptions on the buttons.

    Does not appear so, I've checked before making my statement. The same unit, different logo/brand, would be on the market and flooding already if from China (naturally).
    Could well be from a 3rd European manufacturer, who am I to judge. Ask PlanetCNC

    PS. the quality 2.4GHz antenna is what gives the impression it was engineered in-house...
