Q. Can I daisy chain the intelligent motor control systems and run three stepper motors using one serial connection?
A. Yes, you can daisy chain up to 16 devices on the same serial bus. Each has an address switch to easily set the address of the unit. You can also use firmware settable address for up to 64 devices on the same bus.
Q. Do I need the starter kit or can I wire a serial cable directly to the intelligent motion unit?
A. The devices communicate via RS-485. Our starter kit includes the necessary USB to 485 converter and will allow you to get up and running quickly. The starter kit is free for first time buyers.
