Issue Details

I would like to use my NI ISM 7411/7412 with a cDAQ controller. Is this possible?

Are cDAQ controllers able to control NI Ethernet Stepper motors?

Solution

Yes, the NI Ethernet Steppers are compatible with cDAQ controllers. 

Additional Information

With Windows embedded controllers the ISMs are interacted with in the same way that they are on a typical Windows computer. The ISM Getting Started Guide is a good resource for this information. 

Most controllers running Real-Time are also compatible. The SoftMotion Compatibility Guide is a good resource for determining which controllers are supported.
