ShopBot's PRSstandard CNCs are our high-performing yet affordable, gantry-based CNC router, priced at less than $20,000. Using proven ShopBot advanced technology for CNC cutting, drilling, carving and machining, the PRSstandard is the right tool for smaller shops ready to venture into CNC productivity yet don’t require high production speeds. The PRSstandard uses our proven CNC workhorses, the super-tough, open-loop stepper motors with low-backlash gear heads as well as RBK series stepper motor drivers, delivering more power, higher speeds and step resolution, and smoother cutting. The control system that runs the PRSstandard is the same full-featured controller used on all of our tools, and the leading affordable CNC controller for shops around the world. The control system software reads the new open standard for CNC code and OpenSBP as well as the older format for CNC G-Code. The latest version of our control system software is always available for free download from our web site. Best of all, as your needs and shop change, so does your CNC: you can upgrade your PRSstandard to our top-of-the-line, high-performance system by simply adding PRSalpha Control System, drives and motors.

If you will be using a standard router, the PRSstandard Control Box can be plugged into a 110VAC (50-60Hz)*, 20Amp circuit. For spindle options, your Control Box and spindle will need a dedicated 220VAC circuit (optionally 3 phase). You will need to know about the electrical service to your shop to plan your configuration. A 220VAC Control Box will need to be wired into the electrical service by a licensed electrician.
