Good day all.

As I am now upgrading to a 2.2kw water cooled spindle, I can now offter to you my SuperPID v2 (Closed-loop PID Router Speed Controller).

Here are some details regarding the SuperPID.

Quote from SuperPID website
Super-PID is a closed loop speed controller that allows low-cost 1/4" and 1/2" routers to be used as speed-regulated spindles.
Super-PID bridges the gap between expensive VFD spindles and low cost unregulated routers that have very poor low speed performance.
The addition of a Super-PID to your router setup allows the use of lower cutting RPM, quiet operation, exact regulated speeds and gives massive power improvements when operating 1/4" and 1/2" routers at low speeds.
Super-PID uses a reflective optical infra-red sensor that is simply pointed at the router output shaft and detects a spot of white paint on the shaft.
This enables closed-loop speed control and a microprocessor chip inside the Super-PID executes an industrial style P.I.D. algorithm to give precise speed control with dramatically increased power at low and medium revs.
You are no longer limited to burning wood and melting plastic at 20000 RPM
- now you can cut QUIETLY with usable power as low as 5000 RPM!

Super-PID v2 Features:
Sophisticated PID+ algorithm specifically tuned for router spindles
Suits the majority of routers, woodsaws, and universal motors
Fully assembled and tested PCB
Sold as "assembled kit" form, just install in a box and connect the wires
Accurate Tacho RPM display on LCD
Motor "power used" bargraph display on LCD
Simple speed control knob sets RPM
Logic-level control input allows on/off under PC control
"Open loop" mode is pin selectable
Separate "Tacho" output compatible with Mach3 and EMC2
Can be speed controlled from 0-5v external PC control source
Router run hours timer
Optional Tempertare sensor feature

Super-PID v2 Specs:
Complete opto-isolation of mains voltages from 5v control circuitry
Regulated speed range; 5000 RPM to 30000 RPM
Rated for continuous use/production etc
USA/Canada/Mexico/Colombia/Venezuela 120v AC model; 1800W 120v AC (suits 15Amp routers)
UK/Europe/Asia/South America/Aust/NZ/Middle East/Africa 240v AC model; 2000W 240v AC
Requires 5v DC supply at 150mA
Autodetects 50Hz/60Hz mains frequency

Super-PID CNC open-loop spindle test

If you where to buy this new from the US you are looking at aprox the prices below.
SuperPID v2: $155.00 (95 ish) + Standard Shipping: $24.95 (15 ish) = $179.95 (110 ish).
SuperPID v2: $155.00 (95 ish) + Express Shipping: $45.00 (27 ish) = $200.00 (122 ish).
The above price does not include import tax/vat/fees.
110 + VAT@20% = 132.00
122 + VAT@20% = 146.40
For the price above all you get is the bare SuperPID v2 board, and rpm pickup sensor and cable.

Now I am offering you a full SuperPID v2 working setup ready to use, for less then it would cost you to buy it new from the US.

SuperPID v2
Custom enclosure
RPM Sensor + 2.5m cable.
2.5M data cable.

I am looking for 130.00 including delivery (UK Only) via InterParcel.

I will post some pictures as soon as I can find some charged batteries for my digital camera.

Thanks for looking.

Best Regards.

Here are some pictures of the SuperPID v2.0 that I have forsale.


Best Regards.

I forgot to say that the above price of 130.00 including delivery (UK Only) via InterParcel. Does also include a free, Performance Power FMTC1020R 1020W router, Collets, etc.

This is how I had it fitted.

Thank you for your interest.

I did state in my post that I was looking for 130.00 inc delivery (UK Only) via InterParcel, for the SuperPID, and this also included the router and it's accessories for free.

But as said in post #3, I am Open to sensible offers, So make me an offer, the worse I can do is say no thanks.

Best Regards.

Many thanks for your reply...I can see that now after a closer read of your original post.

I have been struck down with a terrible case of indecisivitis and cannot commit to one idea yet so will avoid purchasing a router/spindle until I know what I will be mounting it on...and what I will be cutting with it...and where i will be cutting...and how often...and.........

Thanks again
