Setting up motion control systems can be time consuming, costly, and complex. At Zaber, we focus on simplifying motion control. One way our systems can save you time and money is by reducing the number of cables required for a multi-axis system. While there are a few ways to reduce cabling, in this case we will be discussing daisy-chaining both data and power for multiple Zaber devices. Daisy-chaining refers to the connection of several devices in a linear series. Zaber’s stepper motor controllers can share both data and power through a daisy-chain, which is the most efficient way to reduce cabling. This paper provides an overview of Zaber products, how Zaber devices can daisy-chain data and power, which devices will work best for your application, and a quick tutorial on how to use Zaber's online Quick Set-up Tool.
