AKD2G Dual Axis drives have the ability to use the new Gantry Command Source. When the Command Source is changed to 4 - Gantry, Axis2 will follow all commands sent to Axis1 (enable/disable and motion commands). This is meant to be used when there are gantry mechanics and both Axis1 and Axis2 are physically connected and sharing a load. By giving them the same motion commands at the same time ensures that they will not fight each other while connected and prevent binding of the mechanics.

The S200 updated boards use a larger FPGA with multiple feedback and filter options. Two new parameters have been introduced to select/set these options. These parameters allow the updated boards to use a single FPGA control logic release (LogicVer = 4/VerLW = 4.xx) to replace multiple control logic versions used in original S200 units with old FPGA (LogicVer = 3/VerLW = 3.xx) up to 2021.
