- Nov 6, 2013I have used many G540's and agree they are a great device. But you still
need to put it in a box, with a power supply and a bit of wiring.
I recently did a machine (Zen Toolworks router) for a fellow, and I used
the new PMDX 340 control box. This has everything in a box, all you need
to do is hook the motor wires into the terminal strip, plug in the power
cord and its ready to run. It has several LED indicators on the front of
the box that are very handy, and it has a motor test capability that
lets you run the motors without any PC connected so you can isolate
problems. All in one nice neat box and for $380.
I have used several PMDX products and they have all been excellent.
Although I am a mach3 fan, this box will run either mach or linux, it
just needs a parallel port plugged into it.
