That's when the MASSO controller came into being. A dedicated embedded CNC controller was designed from the ground up on a custom-built hardware platform that included all the inputs and outputs to control machine axis, spindles, accessories, etc. All the required hardware is built into the system and the user only needs to connect an monitor screen through the built-in VGA port and a standard USB keyboard. With a unique dedicated architecture, the machine can be controlled without requiring any dedicated PC.
Built-in WiFi Connectivity – MASSO G3 comes with Wi-Fi hardware and software to easily transfer gcodes files to the machine and monitor machine/job status through WiFi.
- MASSO G3 CNC Plasma Controller
A simple and standalone Plasma CNC Controller with fully integrated hardware and software specially designed to run CNC machines independently of a PC. No need to worry about installing drivers or motion cards, just wire the MASSO to your motor drives and enter calibration values to start machining. External Torch Height Control (THC) allows MASSO to control the Z axis automatically in THC mode.MASSO Plasma Hardware Features
