Hi, Asparaguy

You need a Step/Dir to 10 + - Volt Board, Hears a tester you can make.

Zero the volts before hooking it up to your servos + - leads, It will let you test them, Disconnect batteries when not being used.

Your "Step/Dir to 10 + - Volt Board" will need an Encoder input, From your servo amp or a separate Encoder.

Hope this Helps, Chip
