I would like to slowly start and stop and NI ISM 7411/7412 (Integrated Stepper Motor). How quickly does it move?


You can define the speed of the motor using the steps per revolution. From the User Manual we see "The smallest step size is 1/51,200th of a motor turn. To command a motor speed of 50 revolutions per second (3000 rpm) the step pulse frequency must be 50 × 25,000 = 1.25 MHz. The Steps/Rev value can be entered in any multiple of 2"
