Command:SCANR (NR)

MS2000 or RM2000 syntax
Shortcut NR
Format SCANR [X=start] [Y=stop] [Z=enc_divide] [F= #_pixels]
Units X and Y in mm, Z and F as integer
Remembered Using SS Z
Firmware Required SCAN
Tiger syntax
Shortcut NR
Format [addr#]SCANR [X=start] [Y=stop] [Z=enc_divide] [F= #_pixels] [R=retrace_speed]
Units X and Y in mm, Z and F as integer, R as percentage (0-100)
Type Card-Addressed
Remembered Using [addr#]SS Z
Firmware Required SCAN

Sets up raster scan start and stop positions, with the position values expressed in millimeters. During scanning, the stage will move past both of these positions slightly, so that when scanning within the range specified, the scan proceeds with uniform speed (set by the SPEED command). On units equipped with hardware position Sync, the output pulse goes high as the stage crosses the start position. On systems with the ENC_INT firmware module, an output pulse will occur every enc_divide number of encoder counts.

If the user specifies the #_pixels, the stop position will be calculated based upon the enc_divide and start position.

On TG-1000 v3.30 and later use retrace_speed to specify the speed of the retrace move as a percentage of the max speed (decimal value between 0 and 100). The default value of 67 was the hardcoded value previously. This feature can be added to MS-2000 on customer request.
