    I got my new blackbox installed it ran for about hour then it would disconnect when I would turn on the spindle. I installed the latest upgrade and and now I get an error message and the program will not run. Error message "Uncaught exception: can't read property' ends with' of undefined at app.electronapp.on C:program files (x86)\ openbuilds controls\resources\app.asar\index.js:2103:26) at app.emit(events.js:182:13". Is there a tech person that can help or is there a fix for this problem?

    Hi Nate:

    Disconnect issue: Not software related. EMI related. Make sure you have a USB cable with big ferrite on it. Also, I find that I have that issue when turning the router on with the switch on the router. If I plug the router into power strip and use the power strip on/off switch, the problem goes away.

    Software: Javascript error reported and fix earlier today. Install 1.0.162.


    Edit: For reference, here's the previous report I was referring to: OpenBuilds CONTROL Software

    Thanks I was pulling my hair out night last night and this morning. Will first check on getting a new cable. I'm running a 2.2 kw spindle and EMI sounds like the bad guy.

    Ah. Okay, thought you had a router.

    For the usb, find one that has a ferrite on both ends. More expensive, but worth it :)

    I went to Fry's and picked up some sheilds and that took care of the problem. Thanks. This is all new for me so everything is a learning curve.
