Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
- Why use Ethernet Connection for my Motion Controller?
The Ethernet Connection has many advantages over USB. It is more reliable as Ethernet runs a client-server connection, while USB runs as a Windows Device. If there happens to be any glitch in the communication, you can lose the USB d...
- How fast does my Motion Controller need to be?
You can estimate the appropriate speed requirement for your motion controller by understanding how fast you need your pulse stream to be. You will need to balance axis travel speed and the step resolution or length of each step in actual machi...
- Should I use an External Motion Controller running in real-time for my CNC?
The main advantage of using an external motion controller is that runs all the function in a real-time environment. So many functions, like homing, reading an encoder, threading, probing, etc., are tied to the exact time in which they occur. I...
