    G201X Disable input - float then ground, or +5V then ground?

    When using the G201X Disable input, which as I understand should be connected to Terminal 12 (ground) in order to DISABLE the drive, when NOT in a DISABLE state, should the Disable input be simply floating, or should it be connected to a positive (+5VDC) point? Not sure if "floating" when not diabled would be the best solution...

    thanks

    That input is likely to be pulled to 5V+ internally through a resistor. I think you can safely leave it floating.
