There is no reason you can't run 24x7 -in fact many Ajax users do just that in commercial production enviroments.

hello. yes the dc3io mpu11 are very robust. 100% duty cycle. One customer of mine, Dennis Parton of Tectonics recently had me upgrade two of his old CNC PC's to the latest version to gain (some new features like USB stick, linux instead of dos etc..) He has two 4'x4' Magnum routers circa 1998 that for last 12 years have run continuously doing motion intensive 3D surfacing cutting G10. In the 12 years he never needed a servo motor, servo drive , or CNC CPU. He actually wore out the linear rails on both machines!! which were recently upgraded at the same time as the new PC's. What also cool, is how many CNC controls out there can you put an all new PC, all new CPU (he upgraded from old cnc7 card to CNC10 PCI), all new operating system on 12 year old drives and servo motors and have it plug together work out of the box? (A simple back up the old DOS CNC config and update to the new linux version was all it took.) The new software also runs his machine faster and smoother which increased his surface finish and his production at the same time. All for under $1200 in total parts per machine. unreal. What kind of cnc work did you have in mind when you asked the question? -keith
