    Do these drivers get programmed? I found this on Oriental Motor's forum posted by a service tech a while back talking about programming question on these. I'm interested, I've been thinking about adding one on my buddy.

    It should be a pretty easy replacement since there are no programs stored on an ASD30A-A driver. The stored program type driver would be an "ASD30A-AP" model. In your case, your program should be stored on your pulse generator. The pot and DIP switch settings do need to be the same if your motor is the same. "[/FONT]
