The SCX55 MOSFET indexer-driver features an integral controller that uses Windows object-based programming. The indexer-driver is capable of acceleration and deceleration rates to 3,000 revolutions per sec/sec, 0.025 to 50 revolutions per second in any microstep resolution, 2,000 to 50,800 microsteps per revolution, distances from 1 to 16 million steps, and a program capacity of 100 lines and 14 commands or instructions. Featuring "plug-and-play" technology, the indexer-driver has no switches or knobs on the front panel and no internal jumpers.
