Identifying USB Device - CNC Controller
Posted 2019-08-19 21:07
Howdy. I'm trying to get my CNC controller software (CNC Shark Control Panel) working via CrossOver Mac, so I no longer have to rely on using a Windows virtual machine in Parallels Desktop. In order for the application to launch, it needs to be able to detect my CNC machine's hardware controller, which connects to the computer via USB. I read the official instructions for getting CrossOver to recognize USB devices, but the Terminal commands in that article did not reveal any device name for my hardware controller.

I've tried different combinations of Terminal commands, including:

system_profiler SPUSBDataType
ioreg -p IOUSB -w0 -l
diskutil list
ls -1 /dev/tty.*

Only the system_profiler and ioreg commands were able to even recognize the CNC controller as a connected device.  See system_profiler output below:

         ncPOD Controller:

          Product ID: 0x056f
          Vendor ID: 0x16c0
          Version: 0.01
          Serial Number: 0001
          Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
          Manufacturer: OEMtech
          Location ID: 0x14100000 / 30
          Current Available (mA): 500
          Current Required (mA): 500
          Extra Operating Current (mA): 0

I tried inputting the name "ncPOD Controller" in the Ports key, as described in the tutorial, but that did not seem to work:

I connected the CNC controller via Parallels Desktop, to see if I could find a different device name through Windows Device Manager:

I tried inputting the name "ncPod" in the Ports key, but still could not get the device to connect through CrossOver.  I haven't had a chance to test the name "USBPDO-7" yet.  Just wondering if anyone has any insight into identifying the correct device name for this type of USB-connected device. Thank you in advance.
