AKD X9: I/Os for comparison output, how to connect the DIO9 ,DIO10, DIO11 to the PLC?

AKD: X9--> the emulation mode set to 10: general purpose I/Os, then it can be used as output for compare engine output, But can't find the connection diagram about DIO9, or 10, or 11 in the manuals. Need your kindly help.

Documentation is being finalized for this new feature.  RS485 standards apply for both voltage and a 3 MHz speed.  DC Common = X9 pin 3.  Shield = X9 pin 6.  DIO9+ is X9-1, DIO9- is X9-2, DIO10+ is X9-4, DIO10- is X9-5, DIO11+ is X9-7 and DIO11- is X9-8.

Dear Michael: Many thanks for your kindly answer. I have connected as you instructed, I can force the DO 10 state and can see the signal on/off change by scope( i change the difference A+, A- to A by a board i made, then I measure A and GND of power supply) . Now, I connect the DO 10 to the output of compare engine 0. i want to get a pulse when the motor rotate across a certain angle for example, 60 degree. But i can't see the pulse. if i connect the compare engine output to DO 1, it works. I can see the pulse. It seems that the compare engine output can't go to DO 10, I have tried few times but no success. Would you please kindly help to see if there are special configuration needed to get the compare engine run with DO 10 or 11 or 9?
