I'll take one, but I cannot get anyone over there to call me back. If I just order it on the website right now, will I get the updated one?

Awesome. I just placed an order for the controller, board and software. I left a note telling them I wanted the terminal version of the board, and will call in the morning to double check.

The one part about the new design that I'm not comfortable with is having only a single terminal for the four common wires. My work-around is using the Wago 221-415 lever-nut. That lever-nut has a common terminal for each of the four wires, plus a terminal to attach a single wire to the C86ACCP for each ClearPath motor. I always have a few boxes of the two terminal, three terminal, and five terminal lever nuts on hand. The price for the 5-terminal lever nut is around $25 per box of 25 from a local supplier.

Agreed. They ran out of real estate. Taking one wire from the terminal and soldering to the other 4 is a better way to go.
