• Pulse/Direction: simple motor/drive with 4 control modes: torque, speed, velocity, and step clock direction
• Motion Control: fully programmable intelligence over RS-422/485, includes 11,120 bytes of flash memory
• Ethernet: ODVA compliant EtherNet/IP, and ModbusTCP, adapter class device with explicit or implicit messaging
