Motor overview

The motor is one of the most used elements in sardana. A motor represents anything that can be changed (and can potentially take some time to do it), so, not only physical motors (like a stepper motors) fit into this category but also, for example, a power supply for which the electrical current can be modified. As it happens with the motor controller hardware and its physical motor(s), a sardana motor is always associated with its sardana motor controller.
