Hi, I'm absolutely new to microcontrollers and everything around that. But I think I have a little skill and I'm willing to learn ;-)

So my project is: I'm developing a little machine driven by one dc motor (only back and forth) carrying a linear guide unit with a slide (also with a dc motor) and a digital dial for measurements.
The two motors are controlled by a Sabertooth2x32 and a Kangaroo motion controller from http://www.dimensionengineering.com

Now I would like to control (finally over wifi) the machine with MLP and arduino and saving the measurements from the digital dial.

By the moment I'm working with the motion controller for the linear guide where I have to drive the slide from one side to the other guiding the dial.
The Kangaroo motion controller has an arduino library https://www.dimensionengineering.com/so ... tated.html with several commands.

My problem is how I should implement these commands from the library in MLP or send these commands from MLP to the arduino/motion controller?

Any help would be appreciated.
