Controlling a DC motor with the Seletek

How to command a DC motor, as if it was a stepper,
with the Seletek Tarsier

We've just recorded an instructional video showing how easy it is to control on of the affordable DC motors with the Seletek.

Of course we can supply the adapting cable - and of course this also works for the EXP connector (just use pins 5 and 4 instead of 1 and 2, as shown in the video). 

In recent versions of the software the speed is specified in microseconds, so please change the 50 in the video with 50000.

Please note DC motors are *NOT* steppers - they are more prone to slipping,
so make sure everything runs smooth before autofocusing with them!
