Do the drives except Step and direction?

If so the ESS from Warp9 is my choice.

All depends on what you are looking for, my thoughts are the likes of the ESS etc are good but for a more industrial rated machine a better option is one of the CSMIO products.
My first choice is the CSMIO/IP-A but that requires that your servo drives can accept analogue command (+/-10v)
If they are only Step/Dir then the CSMIO/IP-S does that, just the IP-A has a few more benefits.
If the I/O requirements are not so high then there is the lower end CSMIO/IP-M which again is Step/Dir.

I'll sneak in and recommend Dynomotion's KFlop combined with a Kanalog, however it does involve a bit more knowledge to setup than the above options. It is however far more powerful and opens up lots more options of what can be acheived.

Meant to say CS-Lab have a macro for the water jet for breakthrough for use with their controllers, not sure if the IP-M is included so better ask if you are considering it.
I dont have a water jet, never used one, so how well the macro works I have no idea ;)
Anyway here is the info.
