I have this closed loop stepper motor and driver bundle:
Driver Data sheet (Not very descriptive):
Q1: The driver has an option of "point mode" vs "track mode", what do these mean? The datasheet doesn't mention these anywhere.
Q2: Also, for bonus points, which one is better?
Q3: For extra bonus points, is step/direction mode or CW/CCW mode better in general?
I'd be very grateful for any help.
Edit: I failed to find anything online explaining this. My initial guess was that "point mode" corrected missing steps at the end of the commanded movement and "track mode" corrected missing steps throughout the movement.
Edit 2: From testing the device it and listening to the noise it makes when moving I've found that I think it meets my guess, 'track mode' produces intermittent louder steps throughout the commanded move which I assume is it trying to correct the steps as they happen. 'Point mode' moves quietly to the destination and then has some louder steps at the end of the commanded move which I assume is it compensating for lost steps. I will post this and other info as an answer below.
Edit 3: Cropped driver picture
