    Default PC Stolen with NCStudio card. NOW which Mach3 breakout to buy?

    Hey All

    I had an unfortunate breakin and my the computer that ran the cnc was stolen. It had the NCStudio card in it. I am thinking to go to Mach3 so i can use a laptop.

    I see there are many on the market. Which should I get and what difference is there between 50hz, 200hz and 400hz in terms of functionailty? What do i get with a 400hz that i don't get with 50hz?

    Thanks in advance.

    What do i get with a 400hz that i don't get with 50hz?
    350hz.

    If your machine only needs 50Khz, then a higher rate will do nothing for you.
    Personally, I'd stay away from any of the chinese boards.
    And what you want is a motion controller, not a breakout board.

    i have had my machine for 3 years and never had problems with it in anyway - so i am a bit hesitent to go to Mach3 even though i know it is solid - the devil i know.

    Hey Jackie

    You know i have used it for 3 years on NCStudio 5.5.x.x and it has been 100% solid. No issues at all. Another reason i want to rather stay with NCStudio is i have the remote like this 3 Axis 2 4G USB Ncstudio Weihong Handle Wheel CNC Wireless MPG Remote Controller | eBay. THe USB dongle was stolen with the PC. Can you replace JUST the USB dongle also?

    Please quote me as i have a quote on eBay for $40 and $18 for shipping.

    Hi Shearder

    Yes I think it is better to stick with NCstudio because you have been familiar with it .There is no sense to change it to a new controller because all the parameters will be different .

    The price of control card from Ebay seems fair enough ,you can order directly from it .If you couldn't find the dongle for MPG ,I can help you to check .

    Have a nice day man .
