The Add-A-Motor serial configuration cable is an off-the-shelf servo system solution that is ready to plug and play. The fully moulded cable connects SmartMotors in a daisy-chain configuration for serial operation, eliminating the need to create custom, multi-axis cable configurations for each application. The cable is designed to supply DC power and RS-232 communications to multiple SmartMotor 1700 and 2300 series motors. Available in lengths of 0.3 m, 1.0 m, 3.0 m and 7.5 m, each cable has a female seven-pin 7W2 Combo-D-sub connector on one end and a female seven-pin 7W2 D-sub connector backed by a male seven-pin connector on the other end.
