Using a RS485 bus driven by USB input.
Each legdriver gets dynamicly an address via a daisy chain connection of address-in and address-out lines.
All the address-in lines are high, except for the first driver the address line is permanently low.
Exept when the Digital switch on unit 0/7 (Last adress check) is off, then all units switch to analog (0-5V) input
for testing purposes.
This first driver reads an address of 0 on the adress-in line.
+1 = his address, He sends his address on the addres-out line to the next unit, ......
And the last "7nd extra check unit" sees a 6 comming in from the last driver and puts is on a display.
