My axis motors arrived earlier this week.  As we just discussed, the positioning loop goes CSMIO->Driver->Motor/Encoder->CSMIO, my motors have all of the cables and plugs to connect the motor/encoder back to the driver, now I assume I could just lop off the connector and plug the wires into the CSMIO, but there are A LOT of wires, do all of these return to the CSMIO?

see pic, you have encoder outputs from the drive, thats what you feed to CSMIO.

The I/O under the CN2 label (left side) are all supposed to connect to the CSMIO anyways so that works, I just have to put those into the encoder A B and I +/- inputs?

Yes that is correct.

There is a note about some commands being for position control mode vs analog speed control mode. Are those to differntiate between digital and analog control, so I will not use the position mode I/O?

Not sure which you are talking about but most likely you will not use any position commands.

On the next page it has details about each pin. Some have a P or S mode which is for 'Position' or 'analog Speed.'

Yes ones marked P only are no use on an analogue command setup.

I get the Encoder Feedback ABZ+/- on the driver go to encoder feedback ABI+/- on the CSMIO. But loking as CSMIO vs the driver I see Coder Aout, Bout, Zout+/- on the driver but see Analog output XYZABC +/-10v and XYZABC ground on the CSMIO, thats 6 pins on the driver per axis, but only 2 on CSMIO.  What am I missing there?

The drive outputs the ABZ differential signals which you input to the CSMIO, you will have that for each drive.
The Analogue command  for the Drive comes from the analogue output of the CSMIO, again there will be one for each drive.


So Drive outputs A+ A- B+ B- I+ I- and they go to the CSMIO for each axis.
The CSMIO outputs +/-10v signal for each axis  and they  go to the respective drives for each axis.
