WARNING: Axis Pulse and Direction signals are differential type signals and the following

precautions must be taken to wire the controller to avoid any electrical damage to the system:

 

  • All axis outputs are differential signals with -5 to +5 outputs
  • The negative or the positive side of the drives must never be connected to other signals
  • All signals must be isolated to other signals and connected directly to the drives
