BitRunner allows Carbide Motion to control power to your router without the need for you to reach for the power switch each time a program ends or each time a tool change is required.
This new version of BitRunner includes a new lockout pendant so you can manually disable the router during bit changes for additional safety.
Standard vs. Deluxe
BitRunner Deluxe includes an internal AC filter to better keep electrical noise from leaving the router and entering the AC power lines in your shop. If you've got funky AC wiring in your shop, or you've seen EMI-related disconnects, then we recommend BitRunner Deluxe.
- Remote lockout pendant
- Pendant cable (4.2 meters / 13.7 feet)
- Grounding cable (2.6 meters / 8.5 feet)
- Carbide Motion logic cable (2.6 meters / 8.5 feet)
Can I use it to control my Shop Vac?
No, BitRunner is only for the router. Connecting a Shop Vac to BitRunner will likely overload the internal circuit. It is also likely to cause electromagnetic interference with both motors turning on and off at the same time.
BitRunner is compatible with all Shapeoko Pro, Shapeoko 4, and Shapeoko 5 Pro machines.
If you have Shapeoko 3 with a V2.3 board and below (Shapeoko 3 machines purchased before Black Friday 2019), you will need to add the Carbide Motion PCB with an enclosure, which includes a new circuit board with the BitRunner connector installed. If you have a Shapeoko 3 with a V2.4 PCB, please take a picture of it and email support to confirm that it will work as-is.
