How do I determine the kind of Iconasys turntables that I have?

Step-by-step guide

Starting with version 5.0 of ShutterStream, Iconasys has added support for stepper motor tables.  Our turntables now support two types of hardware for determining the table position:

  1. Encoder.  In the encoder models, we use a DC or AC motor to turn the table, while an encoder keeps track of the positions of the table.  
  2. Stepper.  In the stepper models, a stepper motor is used to tell the motor how many steps to rotate.

All Iconasys turntables use the same basic hardware controller to communicate with the computer, but it is important to know the table you're using so that the software can send the proper commands.  Here is a list of Iconasys turntables and how you can determine the kind of table you need to select:
