  • Jogging Stepper motor thru serial communication

    Using Click PLC, I would like to know if there is any communication (SEND) syntax to jog a Surestep motor via serial communication. I found the example for indexing a stepper motor over serial communication (sending Speed, Accel, Decel and number of steps and a GO command). However the stepper motor is used to index fabric under a press, which then cuts out a pattern. I need the jog capability to initially thread the machine with the fabric. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you in advance

    I'm assuming you are using one of the "advanced" Surestep drives that uses SLC commands. JS (Jog Speed) CJ (commence jogging) and SJ (stop jogging) seem like they should do the job
