Hello Mark,

SkyFi only serves as a WiFi to RS232 adapter (+ WiFi to USB serial adapter in the latest model), it does not support the encoders' readout. You need another device that reads the encoders...

Nexus provides the encoders' readout and also two WiFi to RS232 adapters (all are independent) as well as WiFi to USB serial (later this year through the firmware upgrade). In case of using Nexus with ServoCAT only one of the RS232 ports is available as a WiFi to RS232 adapter.

For a simple wireless DSC mode of operation Nexus is equivalent to: SkyFi + Tangent Instruments Box.

Best Regards,
Serge.
