Yes, it supports soft IOC, and yes you use drvAsynIPPort.  You pass the name of the asynIPPort as the third argument to the omsMAXnetConfig command.

Hi Ron,

Thank you for the swift reply.  Just want to verify that Jens' asyn motor support for OMS MAXnet controller does support soft IOC, correct?  Besides, should I use asyn drvAsynIPPort as the driver support with Jen's asyn motor support?

Thanks,
William Lu

Hello William, 

Jens Eden (PTB) added asyn motor support for both the OMS MAXv and the OMS MAXnet controllers. That support is available beginning with the latest release (R6-8) of the motor module.

Hi,

We plan to use a soft IOC and an OMS MAXnet motion controller to control a stepper motor.  The soft IOC will communicate with the MAXnet motion controller's Ethernet interface.  What are the existing EPICS device/driver supports that we can use for this soft IOC application?  Can APS's Stepper/DC Motor Controller software or Mark Rivers' devMotorAsyn and drvMotorAsyn be used for this?  What are the pros and cons comparing these two technologies?  Are there other alternatives?

Advice is greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

William Lu
