Applied Motion launches free tools for motor control
These new tools, including an application note and sample code, guide Python programmers in sending high-level motion commands, using Applied Motion’s Serial Command Language (SCL), to one or more axes of stepper and/or servo motors. Step-by-step instructions and examples explain how to establish communications between a Python application and the motion control axes, send commands to one or more axes and handle replies from the axes including acknowledgments and data requests.
Simple and intuitive, the SCL commands are text-based, making them easy to read and understand. Programmers can stream SCL commands to one or more motor axes at a time, creating straightforward sequences of motion profiles on multiple axes. SCL commands can be sent over Ethernet TCP or UDP, RS-485, and RS-232 connections.
