VIX500IM Stepper Drive

Hello Al

I am new here and need some information, I purchased some new sealed VIX500IM drives for a CNC retrofit and need to get them into step and dir mode.

I have configured the drive with my motor which runs with a program.

I found the document How to program an intelligent VIX stepper as a step & direction.

1LIMITS(3,0,0) ;DO NOT USE LOCAL LIMITS

1W(ES,0)         ;X4.11 LOW=ENERGIZE, HIGH (OPEN CIRCUIT) = SHUTDOWN

1W(EI,0)          ;STEP AND DIR INPUT MODE

1MP                 ;STEP AND DIRECTION BASE DRIVE MODE

I also have the motor parameters and communication parameters in the config.

I am apparently missing something.
