Name Description
positionScalar: DevDouble
accelerationScalar: DevDouble
decelerationScalar: DevDouble
velocityScalar: DevDouble
accuracyScalar: DevDouble
offsetScalar: DevDouble


Name Description
StateInput: DevVoid
Output: State
This command gets the device state (stored in its device_state data member) and returns it to the caller.
StatusInput: DevVoid
Output: DevString
This command gets the device status (stored in its device_status data member) and returns it to the caller.
OffInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Turns off the power unit of the axis
OnInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Turns on the power unit of the axis
ResetInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
reset the memorized faults on the hardware if necessary
ForwardInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
continuous move forward, stops with stop command
BackwardInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
continuous move backward, stops with stop() command
FindReferencePositionInput: DevDouble
Output: DevVoid
goes to its initial position, as configured by property InitType, and sets its position at argin
StopInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Stops the current movement with respect to deceleration Use Off to stop without deceleration



Name Description
PositionConversionRatioDevDouble conversion factor between user units and hardware units user unit = hardware position PositionConversionRatio default : 1.0
ReferencePositionStrategyDevLong strategy to find refernce position ( well-known mechanical position ) 0 : makes no sense : absolute encoder. 1 : user defines freely the current position. 2 : reference position on limit switch forward 3: reference position on limit switch backward 4 : reference position on home switch 5 : reference position on Zero of incremental encoder
