    Easy to check Kendrick just take the connector off the spindle and if it as 2 wires it's DC, 3 wires it will be VFD/3phase like Geoffrey says. Looking at your other post I agree with Geoffrey it looks like VFD control panel.

    Fr the power problems with the usb what about a powered hub then the usb power is not coming from the laptop.
    The spindle has 4 pins coming off it more than I would expect from DC maybe brushless with a backemf sensor wire.

    I have a UC300 which I've used with Mach3 and was better than just the parallel port on the PC. I now use it with UCCNC and it's another big step up from using it with Mach3. UCCNC and UC300 are designed for each other, with Mach3 you're relying on a third party plugin sitting between Mach3 and the hardware. UC300 is a good option if like me you want to add more sensors like probes and FR override control. The other advantage is you can move beyond WinXP/7 on your controller PC which when you also use it for running Vectric software is a huge advantage. Running mine on a Win10 machine and it's as happy as Larry.
