How many axes work synchronously in the Euro408?

In all the Motion Coordinators it is possible to run all axes synchronously.  There is no limit.
So in the Euro404 you can run all 4 axes with for example a MOVEABS(x, y, z, a)
In the Euro408 you can run all 8 axes with MOVEABS(x, y, z, a, b, c, d, e)
Linked moves can run all the axes following a master encoder or a virtual line shaft.
For example:
master_axis = 8 ' virtual line shaft
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(0)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(1)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(2)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(3)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(4)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(5)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(6)
MOVELINK(100, 120, 20, 20, master_axis) AXIS(7)
FORWARD AXIS(8)
