Tiger syntax

Format MOTOCTRL [Axis]±
Type Axis-Specific

This command enables + or disables - the controller’s ability to control the motor of a certain axis. The motor control voltage is set to zero and the position feedback control is not monitored when the motor is in disable - mode. The electronics of the controller will attempt to keep the motor from moving while disabled, however, it should be noted that this is an open-loop brake control only, and any movement or drift is not corrected. When queried, the controller returns values of 1 or 0 representing enabled and disabled respectively.

If there are no errors, the positive reply :A will be sent back from the controller.

Example
MC X+ Y+ Z-
:A

This example shows that the X and Y motor control is enabled, but disables the Z motor control.
