Summary Sets the maximum position the device is allowed to travel to.

Use this command to limit the range of travel to a value other than the default. Exercise caution when using this command, since it is possible to set the range to a value greater than the physical limits of the device.

A device within range of travel is not allowed to move above its Maximum Position. Valid values can be any number from 0 to 16777215.

The behaviour of this command depends on the firmware version:

5.01 - 5.20

Device movement behaviour when out of range is not well-defined.

5.21 - 5.22

The new Maximum Position cannot be less than the current position.

5.23 and up

If the device Current Position is out of range and above Maximum Position, the device is not allowed to move in the positive direction.

This setting is stored in non-volatile memory and will persist after power-down or reset.

NOTE: This command was previously named Set Maximum Range.
