Interface compatible with X-Controller

Has anyone had any luck connecting this interface: INTERFACE CNC Touch - OpenBuilds Part Store to the X-Controller? I’m looking for a convenient plug and play solution that allows me to jog the machine and send gcode to it that does not require a computer to be plugged in through USB.

I believe you need to be running their hardware/software to communicate.

From the site:
Plug-and-play with OpenBuilds BlackBox Motion Controller
*Note: Can be used with any Grbl 1.1 based controller, which has RX/TX/GND/5V pins (may require you to make your own cabling).

Did you successfully get the Interface CNC Touch connected and running with your X-Controller?

No. Used an old Arduino to do that. Also critical to wire the Tx(controller) to Rx(Dongle) and Rx(Controller) to Tx(Dongle).
