Canbus Added To Motion Controller

The Silverdust IGB servomotion controller/driver now adds a CANOpen interface to NEMA-17 and 23 frame stepmotors.

The CAN interface is fully isolated and supports up to 64 devices on the 1-Mbps bus. The motion controller serial port (RS-232 or RS-485) is still available for connection to a PLC, HMI, or PC. Official CANOpen validation is pending.
