The Stepper Output Interface and Stepper Output Wiring Base are part of a family of interfaces that serially connect to a PC. One RS422 port on the PC can connect to as many as 63 different remote interfaces in a daisy-chain fashion strung out over thousands of feet. The 115.2 KBAUD communication rate and efficient protocol allow the PC to access remote interface data at the rate of 2000 interfaces per second. The family of interfaces includes discrete I/O, encoder interface, stepper motor interface, analog inputs, analog outputs, etc.
The Stepper Output package connects the PC to a remote stepper motor driver with step and direction signals. The PC can set minimum step rate, maximum step rate, acceleration and deceleration rate, direction, and number of steps.
The wiring base provides all the connection points to daisy-chain power and RS422 signals. It also provides the connections for the step and direction signals. Other options can be jumpered on the wiring base - card address, RS422 termination, count reversal, Z pulse inversion, etc.
The Stepper Output Card plugs into the wiring base. Two screws keep the card firmly attached to the wiring base. The interface can be quickly replaced without the need to disconnect wires or setup any jumpers.
