    Hi everyone, I'm newbie here. Can someone teach me how to control the stepper driver in the picture below? Should i use raspberry?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    this is puls/direction
    one option is to do it by Ethercat and EL2521

    Hi edwin, did you have some example about it? I've researched in google but i still don't know how to use those device (EK1100 and EL2521). Base on your picture, i need to buy EK1100 right? But why i need it? Cause i can easy give driver pulses with GPIO of Rasberry.

    Hi,
    yes you need to have EK1100 and EL2521.
    Using GPIOs is maybe possible depend on how fast you need to move the motor. ( and you need to convert the 3.3V GPIOs to 5V whatever your puls/dir interface is using).

    We have no ready to use driver for GPIO's in combination with SoftMotion. So the only way to do it with PLCopen FB's and Robotic/Motion is to use these.

    Hi Edwin,

    If possible using wago module rather than beckhoff?

    Thank you

    Hi John,
    we have no SoftMotion driver for the Wago modules...!
