Daisy-Chaining Additional Units
Daisy-chaining refers to the connection of several devices in a linear series. Many of Zaber's devices can share both data and power through a daisy-chain, which is the most efficient way to reduce cabling. For more details on daisy-chaining, read our technical article, "Daisy-chaining Data and Power to Reduce Cabling".
Note: Data connector type between any of Zaber's motorized devices may be M8 (shown), D-sub, or mini-DIN style depending on the devices that you purchased.
