The Leading Manufacturer Of CNC Knee Mill Retrofit Hardware and Retrofit Kits
Starting on Feb. 11th all CENTROID MPU11 based CNC control systems will be using Windows 7 as the operating system, the Linux OS will no longer be offered or supported for MPU11 based systems.
Many of the good reasons for using Linux as a CNC control operating
system have now been eliminated by Windows 7 and modern faster/better PC
hardware. It has now also reached the the point in which Windows 7 offers
advantages over the Linux as a CNC control OS. The menu structure and the
look and feel of the CENTROID CNC software remains the same.
Some of the advantages of
the Windows 7 OS are as follows:
1. Motherboard support (wide variety of MB's work with Win7)
3. USB Drive Support
4. Accessory driver support
5. Remote Desktop Functionality
6. Easy Networking
7. Windows File Saving, user familiarity
8. Num Locks turning off between screens
9. Nedit problems, now use any editor that runs on windows.
You can now use EditNC the serious CNC progammer's editor on your Control!
10. CENTROID can concentrate on developing software for one operating system.

All-In-One DC Control featuring an MPU11 motion controller, 3-Axis DC servo drive (expandable to 6 axes), and expandable PLC I/O all in one affordable unit.
CENTROID is pleased to announce a new All-In-One DC Control featuring an MPU11 motion controller, 3-Axis DC servo drive (expandable to 6 axes), and expandable PLC I/O all in one affordable unit. Introductory list price for the All-In-One DC with CENTROID software will be $1995 USD. This represents a significant savings when compared to the current equivalent list price of a DC3IOB + MPU11 + software for $2664.
Available for use with any 3rd party drives that accept +/-10v, including Yaskawa, Delta, Glentek, Sanyo Denki, Panasonic, Maxsine and more, is CENTROID's MPU11-based 3rd party drive kit. The standard board-level kit includes an MPU11 motion controller, GPIO4D drive interface/PLC (with 16/16 I/O standard), and CENTROID CNC control software for $2249 USD. This kit is equipped to handle 4 axes standard, and can be expanded to 8 axes with the addition of an Optic4 card.
CENTROID has recently successfully tested an MPU11 system with Fanuc Yellow-Cap motors and drives, opening up many retrofit opportunities. Now you can reuse existing Yellow-Cap motors and drives (including spindle). Note also that this system is also capable of running other 3rd-party drives simultaneously with the Fanuc ones. For example, consider a 3-axis Fanuc system -- to add a 4th axis, you can use any other supported 3rd-party drive (not just Fanuc).
