    Re: Anybody know what "PathPilot Controller - Next Generation" means?

    Pretty sure the name just reflects the much smaller form factor with the elimination of the Mesa PCI or PCIe card and the move to ethernet connected machine control vs. the large DB25, difficult to route cabling formerly required. And all of these controllers come with SSD internal storage vs. the rotational media of the older generation. Although I think the older style controllers for the 15L and 440 have also moved on to SSD by now for increased reliability within a shop environment.

    The Haas marketing wanks named the current control as the Next Generation control.
