Issue Details

I want to control a stepper motor drive (step/direction) using the digital output on my USB DAQ and I have connected all the necessary wiring, so how do I control the motor for some simple moves in LabVIEW?
 

Solution

Please refer to this example for some basic stepper motor controls such as direction change and step pulse generation.

Note: Make sure you check all the requirements specified in the example document.
