Description

Wally Kissel has requested a new setting property in the C154 driver to reflect the current position that was set. The current setting is non-intuitive; you set the property to 1 or -1 to move the device but the reading of the setting returns the CAMAC module's internal counter which counts down at 150Hz and is essentially always zero.

For this modification, a new setting property will be added which reads the limit switch status to determine what the setting was. Wally will use database enumerations to give the values useful descriptive text.

Wally, could you add more details so I can understand this request better? When I entered this request, I had a better idea of what was going on. But, a year later, this doesn't make much sense.
