Setting the Maximum Travel Limit

With default settings, the motor controller will be unaware of the maximum travel and will hit the hard limit if commanded to move beyond it. The maximum device travel can be set using the limit.max setting through Zaber Console.

The recommended maximum travel in mm of LC40B products with single carriage can be found from the 4 digits in the product code which is also printed on the product label.

The maximum travel in mm of LC40B with multiple carriages is based on the 4 digit in the product code and product label, subtracted by the total length of the additional carriage and carriage spacing.

For example:

  • LC40B1000-N2 with two carriages with 80mm spacing between the carriages will have a travel of: 1000 - (70 + 80) = 850 mm.
  • LC40B1000-N2 with two carriages with 130mm spacing between the carriages will have a travel of: 1000 - (70 + 130) = 800 mm.
