1.4. Supported Operating Systems
The Simple Motor Controller USB drivers and configuration software work under Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 11, and Linux.
On ARM-based Linux machines such as the Raspberry Pi, the graphical configuration program (the Simple Motor Control Center) does not work. This is caused by problems with Mono’s implementations of WinForms on those systems.
We do not provide any software for Mac OS X, but the controller’s USB virtual COM port is compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and later. As a result, the Simple Motor Controller can be controlled from a Mac, but a Windows or Linux computer is required if you need to change any of the configuration parameters.
Mac OS X compatibility: we have confirmed that the Simple Motor Controller works on Mac OS X 10.7 and we can assist with advanced technical issues, but most of our tech support staff does not use Macs, so basic support for Mac OS X is limited.
There is an issue that prevents the Simple Motor Controller from working with macOS 10.11 or later.
