The BTM CAN motors have an integrated intelligent electronic, which can link "X" BTMCAN motors in a row via one thin flexible BUS cable (daisy-chain). The motor can be configurated via switches as a focus, iris or zoom motor. Endstops and other lens parameters are automatically stored in the motor via pushing the buttom „Test“.
