Here is info from Steffen Rau about limitations of the E-816:

“Compared to current GCS2 devices from PI,  E-816 has  limited 
functionality. The basic commands (e.g. to position a stage and read the 
sensors) are the same. But E-816 is an interface module and not a 
digital controller, therefor many other features are not available for 
the E-816 (e.g. acceleration, velocity, travel range, 
homing/referencing). So it cannot really be “integrated” into the PI 
GCS2 code but will need its separate class and most of the 
implementations will simply be empty.”

I've closed the github issue and will continue to recommend that people 
use the E-816 support from motorPI (https://github.com/epics-motor/motorPI).
