Connect to the DP Series Motor Controller in Python
PROTOCOLS > SCPI
This script connects to a DP Series Motor Controller using a SerialAdapter and creates an instance of the DPSeriesMotorController instrument. It then sets the motor controller’s address and base speed, moves the motor in the clockwise direction, waits for the movement to complete, stops the motor, reads the current motor position, resets the motor position to 0, and finally closes the connection to the motor controller.
