Stepper Motor & FP-DO-403

Hi,
I´m making a x-y table, and I must use the fieldpoint DO-403 to control the motors of this table. I have the current drives for the motors.
I don´t have conditions to buy a motion control board, and I don´t know how do control these motors.
I´m new at Labview, so I´m completely lost.
What do you suggest me?
 
Thanks,
Andre

Hello. I've never used fieldpoint, but I have successfully controlled stepper motors using NI USB DAQ. I think you would only need to modifiy the program so it will communicate via the Fieldpoint instead of the DAQ. The rest of the code , I think, is the same. Hope it helps!

For any future users to read this post, refer to the thread labled What kind of cFP can I use to control a stepper motor for more complete setup information. Hope this helps!
