FAQ Pendants and MPGs


 This page is under reconstruction as of September 2018.




This section woefully under represents the number of Pendants out there.  Pleas let us know of ones we should add. 



  • XBox controller.  If you have an XBox controller, you can use it with a Mach3 plugin or a Mach4 plugin.


  • VistaCNC
    • VistaCNC P1A pendant:  It works in Mach4, but has no config or diagnostic windows at the moment. Their development team is working on it as of October 2017.
