Product Description

About the CNC Linear Controller

The 8800 (8810 metric) stand-alone controller is programmable from its own keypad and controls the function of the stepper motor to which it is attached. The stepper motor may be applied to any axis of a CNC-Ready Sherline machine.

An 8-pin mini-DIN cable can be used to connect multiple units in a “daisy chain”. The units can signal each other to work in sequence, allowing multiple movements to be accomplished without the use of a computer or master CNC controller. They can also be used in conjunction with existing CNC controllers. The controller is user-programmable with two separate programs of up to 40 operations each. In each block, you can control distance, direction, speed and whether the program pauses or proceeds to the next block.

The linear controller can also be “daisy chained” with Sherline’s rotary controller (P/N 8700) to achieve combinations of rotary and linear movement in sequence. This makes it easy to set up for relatively sophisticated operations like cutting gears without having to know anything about CNC programming beyond what is entered from these simple keypads.

Items included with the 8800 (8810 metric) CNC Linear Controller:

  • Linear Controller w/Keypad
  • Power Supply
  • #23 Frame Size Stepper Motor
  • Cables
  • Complete instructions

NOTE: If you wish to apply CNC linear control to an axis of a Sherline machine that does not have a stepper motor mount, see P/N 8850

NOTE: The power supply included with this indexer (linear controller) is intended to operate only on 115/120 VAC, 60 Hz (38 W) current. For countries operating on 100, 220 or 240VAC and/or 50Hz a transformer will be required. As an alternative, this power supply outputs 24VDC, 1 Amp (1000 mA). If you can purchase an appropriate power supply that operates on local current and outputs 24VDC, 1A current, it could be used to power the unit instead of the one supplied. Sherline Products does not provide a 220V power supply or transformer.
