How to Identify a Version 2xx Control Card (Card will be mounted on your Control Board which is different for each type of ShopBot.)

Controller Version

  • These are our most recent series Control Cards. We began shipping them in November 2007. We are currently shipping Version 210. Changes in the board over the last 5 years have been primarily added expansion pins (such as PWM control for lasers and analog input) for new accessories. Basic functionality has been the same since Version 201 and all boards run the same software/firmware.
  • This Control Card connects to the computer via USB. There is a USB Connector on the Card (early front side: front; later: back side).
  • Most older ShopBots can be fitted with Version 2xx Control Cards. Check with ShopBot support to determine how advantageous it would be for you to upgrade your tool.
