[etherlab-users] Stepper motor driver EL7031 issues

Hi,
We bought various Beckoff modules for Digital in , Digital out, Analogue in and Stepper Motor control. 
I am able to communicate with with the digital I/O and analogue input slave modules from Ethercat master IGH 1.5.2 without problems, but the stepper motor controller (EL7031) is more complicated.
Below is a list of the PDO entries for the motor controller retrieved from the Ethercat bus using the command line tool with the cstruct option.
I am only able to set the velocity and then set the enable bit to start the motor running. I have no idea how to command the motor to just turn a certain amount of steps and change direction etc. I have tried to set a counter value but it doesn't make a difference. Also, if I set the bits to move positive or move negative, it doesn't change direction as I would expect. I can't seem to find any documentation or examples on how to control motors with this module EL7031. If anyone has any information or knowledge , I would really appreciate your help. Thanks
