SHOPBOT recently introduced a new control box and control board for its PRSstandard CNC systems.
The PRSstandard control system now includes RBK Series stepper motor drivers contained in a sealed aluminum industrial unit. The RBK drivers provide higher speeds, higher step resolution and smoother cutting than ShopBot's previous generations of PRSstandard models, according to the company. The system has been reconfigured to minimize wiring and includes 12 input and 12 output lines that can be used for standard accessories such as the zeroing plate and the ShopBot air drill. It also features an integrated disconnect switch that serves as a stop for the tool. The new PRSstandard bridges the gap between entry level CNCs and ShopBot's industrial PRSalpha models.
