I have 2 pacific scientific stepper motors. I am trying to run these motors via a PLC control logix 1756. I am also looking for a driver. I am working with Contol logix and stepper motors for the first time.
All I need to know is that, Do I need a special module to give step and direction pulses from my PLC to the driver or the control logix is capable of doing that.
If this is a SLC500 based controller, I would not think using a normal output card is going to work that well due to the update scan time, there are SLC modules intended for dedicated servo and stepper control.
