    Yeahyes, have a nice USB Pendant here too. Would love to see it working with the xPro V4 Board. How is the Arduino connected with the xPro? Nice work Guys...

    Thanks guys! Right now the arduino is a simple test bed for converting MPG signals up the xPRO. The final form will be a plug into the AUX IDC connector

    If you want more info on Arduino to xPRO comms check this thread

    @Spark Concepts So what was the final verdict on the jog pendant?

    @Mark Carew using this approach would the pendant work on your Blackbox controller?

    Theoretically, but OpenBuilds CONTROL has a mobile jog pendant (; - just use your phone tablet on the same network as the PC. No wiring, no equipment needed

    Definitely moving forward! A few minor changes so it require a single cable plug in.

    The BB appears to be Aux serial or USB without an option to toggle between the two (please correct me if I am wrong, have not explored it in depth)...so initially no, but potentially in the near future
