The MC1650LS motor controller looks like a decent alternative to the MC2100. It's newer and smaller yet is used with the same types of high volt DC brush type exercise equipment motors. And prices are lower. Problem is I can't find diddly on connection diagrams or what sort of extra bits are

John; I could give you my machine config, but it might be confusing, as it is not "textbook optimal" Start here by googling "linuxcnc xhc-hb04" and see what you get. Basically: 1) loadusr -W xhc-hb04 -I xhc-hb04-layout2.ini -s 4 -H There are at least 2 button sets, mine is "layout2" 2) # Home

Don't know if this link will make it through but a search of EBAY for "Wired USB MPG Pendant Handwheel Hand Wheel LCD Display for CNC Milling Router" brings up this wired pendant. Does this work with LinuxCNC and/or MachineKit? Thanks John
