    My Motion Simulator:
    3DOF
    I recently built a 5 dof using 4x SCN6-60 actuators from Frex, along with a Frex USB Motion Controller unit.

    For traction loss, I pulled the SCN6-20 off of my Prosimu T1000. I plugged it into the Frex controller but it will not work. All of the Frex SCNs work just fine.

    If I use the Prosimu Motion Controller for just the -20, it works fine. Attached are pictures of the wiring. Seems the Prosimu controller only uses 2 wires, while the Frex controller uses 4? Any ideas here on how I can convert this -20 to work with the Frex unit?

    I've been in touch with Frex, and they sent me over a program called termi-bus to change the axis number on the com port, but it was already at zero as they specified.
