MC202 controller and Motion Perfect

MC202 controller and Motion Perfect

For the MC202 you must use Motion Perfect 2.  Motion Perfect versions 3, 4 and 5 are for the later generation of Motion Coordinators that connect using Ethernet.

I am running this version of Motion perfect 2 on my Windows 10 PC.

You need a COM port on the PC to connect, or if there is no COM port, then use a USB to RS232 adapter based on the FTDI chipset.  Use the 9600 baud rate option.
