How do I know what make/model machine what I have?
CNC Knee Mill-
If you have a CNC Knee Mill you could have one of the following as indicated on the plate located on the ram/head:
• EZ Trak I or EZ Trak II
The V2XT was built with both the DX-32 control which was controlled by a BMDC board and the SX-15 which was controlled by the FMDC board. The exception to this rule is the EZ Trak.
There are EZ Trak SX machines that still have the BMDC based control, however, they boot from a floppy diskette instead of a hard drive device.
Vertical Machining Center-
If you have a Vertical Machining Center you could have one of the following models as painted on the front of the machine:
• TC1, TC2, TC3, TC4
• TC1G, TC2G, TC3G, TC4G (these models were equipped with a transmission)
• Torq-Cut 22 or Torq-Cut 30
• Discovery 300
• Discovery 308
Some of the VMCs listed above were equipped with different controls. Please identify before calling if your control is a Bridgeport DX-32, Heidenhain or Fanuc.
If you have a CNC Lathe you could have one of the following models as painted on the front of the machine near the headstock:
• EZ Path
• EZ Path II
• EZ Path S

If you are asked if your machine has a CIB, you could find one of the following located within the electrical cabinet:

• Bridgeport CIB
• ROMI CIB
CIB stands for Control In Box. Inside the CIB you will typically find your BMDC, motherboard and PC power supply to name a few. If you are still unsure, see the images below for reference.
