The company has added a Programmable Limit Switch (PLS) to its SilverDust controller/driver for servo control of NEMA 17 and 23 frame microstep motors. The PLS command can be configured to use any of the motion controller's possible 23 I/O to change states at more than 150 predefined trigger points.
