NEW!!! ShopBot PRT Controller

Post by Gary Campbell »

A new model of controller designed specifically for the low amperage, high inductance Oriental Motors PK296 and PK299 variants. Features the standard 4 axis of most legacy CNC routers and is expandable to a 5th motor (2nd vertical axis or rotary). Control is housed in a steel NEMA rated sealed control box with fan cooling. User replaceable current limiting resistors and fine tuning on the drive to dial in each motor to its best operation.
Includes a Lenovo CNC-PC, Pro License, setup, connected and preset to user's machine specs.

At its heart is the proven Centroid Acorn 4 and features all exterior labeled user connections for the following:

4 (optionally 5) stepper motors
X, Y and Z homing sensors or switches (24v NPN) and tool measure devices
ESTOP
Router or spindle on/off and speed control (spindles only)
JTech type engraving lasers

Options: (all in NEMA rated ABS enclosures)
4th axis (5th motor) $150
3 button Pendant, ESTOP, Cycle Start, Feed Hold (2 can be reprogrammed) $125
Router on/off control module with SSR $60
Spindle Control Module with contactor and VFD harness $175
Centroid Wireless MPG Pendant with user selected SB macros installed $350
Motor tuning: Send us your motors and we will test and install the best resistor and tune the drive pot for the smoothest operation. $150 + shipping

Note: All features of the Centroid Acorn 4 do not have pre-labeled terminals on the exterior, but are available to the user via internal connections, should they be needed. Total Price: $2495 + shipping
