The spectrum is a 4-axis, or 4 channel motion controller.
Internally, the Pan and Tilt motors are wired to channel 1 and channel 2. Without additional accessories or plugging in anything else, this configuration supports Panning and Tilting.
Externally, we have the two powered motor ports to control our motorized accessories. These are labeled M3 and M4 on the side of the ST4. These are the final 2 channels that the ST4 controls.
You can plug in eMotimo motorized accessory to these powered motor ports, giving you the option for control -
