Neuron-1 CNC controller

Universal CNC controller with 5-axis motion control system.

Neuron-1 is a universal 5-axis CNC motion control system based on Teensy 4.1.
A powerful 32-bit CNC controller running on the grblHAL firmware that is fast becoming the firmware of choice for CNC control due to the increased functionality and added features, replacing current 8-bit CNC controllers by far.

Neuron-1 has been designed with unrivalled ease of use in mind, with its connections via RJ45 Neuron-1 offers a secure and durable fail-safe connection.
In addition, this system makes Neuron-1 plug and play with all our expansions, guaranteeing surprising speed and ease of installation.
