Microstepping

The External Motor Controller supports micro-stepping for a smooth rotation and extra precision. With software, configure it to Full, Half, 1/4 step and 1/8 step.

No USB Port Required

The External Motor Controller does not require USB connectivity and so it does not need to take up a USB port. Simply plug the RJ12 port into the UPBv2 or PPBA's EXT port and the powerbox software will recognize the controller.

Second EXT Port Available

A second EXT port allows you to daisy chain future equipment or connect your environmental sensor.

Protections

The controller is fully protected against undervoltage, overcurrent, and overtemperature events.
