Format OS [axis] = [distance]…
Units millimeter
Type Axis-Specific
Remembered Using [addr#]SS Z

This command sets (or displays) the amount of distance in millimeters to travel to absorb the backlash in the axis' gearing. Analogous to backlash, but will always overshoot the desired position by the set amount and then come back towards the move's origination, whereas backlash always approaches from the same direction. Backlash move, if any, occurs before the overshoot move. Default is 0, which turns the overshoot routines off. When queried will return the actual value instead of the user-set target value


OS X=.05 Y=0
OS x?
:X=0.049981 A

The command in this example will make the controller overshoot any X moves by location 50 microns before moving to the final target, while the overshoot algorithm for the Y axis is disabled.
