    Arrow Relay Board, Control Card, Spindle Control & RBK Board for sale

    Hey all, I've got a set of control cards for a ShopBot for sale. These were all pulled out of my fully working machine.

    First up is a ShopBot motion control card. This board is a USB card that talks to SB3 and sends moves to your machine. Has SB standard DB37 connector so it can be plugged into ShopBot breakout boards.

    It's a V201A:

    New MSRP $250.
    Asking $125

    Next up is a spindle speed controller. For those of you that have a spindle (NOT a router) and you don't have software control, this SB original unit will let you upgrade so that your spindle speed is controlled by SB3:

    New MSRP: $250
    Asking $125

    Next up is a ShopBot relay board. You can add this to your ShopBot to control external devices such as a router, dust collector or vacuum table (or even some lights to tell you your job is done!)

    MSRP $160
    Asking $80

    Lastly we have an RBK Board. This is a current generation board. Great if you need a replacement part, or are upgrading for some more modern SB features that aren't offered by the older boards.

    MSRP $350
    Asking $175

    All of these parts were used by me in my machine and are all working. They've seen less than 2 years in service. They'd make a great set if you're building a new control box, or refreshing an old one.

    I'd sell them as a set, or individually. First come first served!

    Eric, Looks like my V2.06 board in my PRT has gone belly up. What needs to happen in order to make the RBK board work in my box? Very interested!

    The RBK board is just a breakout board that connects to your drivers, which in the case of the RBK are external, not connected directly like your Gecko drivers I believe are.

    If you're talking about the control card, that's the one that plugs into both your PRT breakout board, and this RBK board. I have a V212 card I could sell you, same price as the one listed in the original post here.

    Thinking I am going to go with a new V4g board from Shopbot.

    Does that control board have a direct USB connection?

    if they still make the V4G that'll be a pretty easy swap out for you. If they don't, and you want to stay ShopBot you're looking a full RBK system upgrade. You can also go the DIY route, but you'll be off support if you do that.

    That control card is USB.

    Yea, they quoted me a price. Right now I'm trying to determine where my communication problem lies. If it is the control board, yours would be a way cheaper fix and would probably get me by.

    I'm in the middle of trying to put the control software on a Win 10 machine to eliminate my PC. I've ordered a new USB-DB9 cable to rule that out as well.
