We have built transition boards to communicate between these boards and StepPaks or other motor drivers that accept step/direction inputs. These signals are switchable between differential (RS-422 standard) and single-ended, on a per-channel basis. With minor modifications, they may be made to interface to other types of driver inputs, such as step/step or optical.
