  1. Select the Velocity mode by setting object 6060h (Modes Of Operation) to the value "2".
  2. Write the desired speed in 6042h.
  3. Switch the power state machine to the Operation enabled state, see CiA 402 Power State Machine.

    The following sequence starts Velocity mode; the motor turns at 200 rpm.

  4. To stop the motor, set controlword (6040h) to "6".
