    Jog controls are on a flyout screen on the left.

    You can program the M6 macro for any type of toolchanger that you want, similar to Mach3.

    I assume that the software will be enhanced to support tool changer.
    You can jog with the buttons on the jog panel. it opens up on the left side of the screen.
    You can jog with hotkeys too.
    You can jog with button calls from macros and plugins too.
    You can jog also with MPG.

    Toolchangers are fully supported via the M6 macro, you can write code to run any type of toolchangers. Example code is also there in the M6 macro which install with the software.

    You can also do as I do...

    UCCNC ETH-400-v1_dsc_7990-1k-jpg

    ...buy a cheap USB keypad, define the keys you want to use and use that instead of the jog panel. I almost never open the jog panel.

    This is pretty exciting news Ray! Thanks!! I was a bit bummed when you had so much grief with the acorn since I was looking to go down that path. I'm looking forward to seeing/learning more about this! Any clue how much the shipping is from Hungary? The controller is a lot cheaper directly from them than the US supplier someone posted a link to. If John is switching over to this, I'm guessing he'll start offering it as an upgrade when he can.

    Don't have to be too bright to be me :)

    Mike,

    Yes, it will be offered as an upgrade, and a very simple one at that. Not sure how to buy direct, if you even can anymore.

    You must have looked at the older USB UC300.
    Ger,

    I see ZERO specs on the cncdrive website. I realize the UC300 itself will do 400kHz, but the 100kHz number came from the "product manual" for the breakout board on the CNC4PC site, which has the ONLY specs I've been able to find for the breakout. So, I'd be happy to recommend the UC300ETH, but I'd have to see some actual published specs first that tell me the breakout actually supports 400kHz.

    Regards,
    Ray L.

    CNC4PC doesn't sell the UB1 breakout board, so I don't know what you are looking at. I gave you a link to the product, and you apparently looked at everything BUT the link I gave you.

    The prices from CNC4PC are comparable to the prices direct from Hungary, as their prices are in Euros.

    Ger,

    Your link takes me to some forum, and a page with a $320 package using a completely different breakout board. But I have now found the actual 5LPT document and prices, and you are right, that is a better way to go, so thanks. I already have lots of ideas for nice, low-cost but very useful add-ons to do with the extra I/O.

    Regards,
    Ray L.

    Yes, it's the UB1 breakout board that I'm referring to. And it's not a forum, but the manufacturers website. (Where it says "Forum" is a link to their Thai forum)

    The UB1 is a $180 breakout board for the UC300ETH. The UC300ETH mounts directly to the UB1. so you don't need a 5LPT motherboard. That saves you $40, and basically makes the UB1 a $140 breakout board.
    It's a better breakout board than any CNC4PC board.
    3 ports of 24V I/O, PWM to 0-10V speed control, relays, and analog I/O.

    OK, now I'm, more confused than ever.... In your first most you said:

    The UC300ETH is only about $20 more than the UC400ETH, and gives you a lot more.
    I took this to mean that the UC300ETH with breakout would be $20 more than the UC400ETH, which would be great, as it would eliminate the existing custom BOB. But add in a $140 BOB, and the prices is now MUCH higher than the current SmoothStepper solution, or the UC400ETH solution. Near TWICE the price, in fact. The 300ETH plus the 5LPT is only about $20 more than the ETH400, which is very attractive. And it supports analog I/O, which is the one thing "missing" from the ETH400. Are you suggesting the 5LPT is a CNC4PC product, or there is some other issue with it?

    Oh, how I miss well-designed web sites....

    Regards,
    Ray L.

    I am confused also.

    It appears that the UC300ETH with the 5LPT motherboard is $160 at CNC4PC. No breakout board is included.

    The UC300ETH-UB1 in Ger21s link is $320. No motherboard required and a super-duper breakout board is included. But the UB1 breakout board does not appear to be a CNCDrives product, but is instead made by CNCRoom?

    I have no idea if my Torus (predecessor to the Pulsar) even would need a different breakout board than what I already have? I believe my breakout board is the same as the one used in the Pulsar.
