Applied Motion Products announces tools for Python language with its stepper and servo motors

March 15, 2019 - Applied Motion Products now offers a set of free tools for programmers using Python, the popular computer programming language, to use with its stepper and servo motors to integrate motor control into their applications.  These new tools, including an application note and sample code, guide Python programmers in sending high-level motion commands, using Applied Motion’s Serial Command Language (SCL), to one or more axes of stepper and/or servo motors.  Step-by-step instructions and examples explain how to do the following:

  • Establish communications between a Python application and the motion control axes.
  • Send commands to one or more axes.
  • Handle replies from the axes including acknowledgments and data requests.

The SCL commands are text-based. Programmers can stream SCL commands to one or more motor axes at a time, creating straightforward sequences of motion profiles on multiple axes.  SCL provides commands for motion control including homing, absolute, relative and jog move types as well as input/output control, drive status, alarm status, and much more.  SCL commands can be sent over Ethernet TCP or UDP, RS-485, and RS-232 connections.

Based on the Python language, the tools from Applied Motion Products can help millions of users worldwide to incorporate step motors and servo motors into their projects using a command set specifically designed for motion control.
