 +This command sets/​displays the lower firmware limit switch for an axis.  The Limit positions are considered fixed hardware locations and are adjusted properly when the controller’s coordinate system is altered with the''​ HERE''​ or''​ ZERO''​ function. ​ The Limit positions are automatically remembered and recalled through a power cycle and do not need to be saved using the [[commands:​saveset|SAVESET command]].  ​
 +
 +== Reply ==
 +
 +If there are no errors, a positive reply of  <wrap reply> :A </​wrap> ​ followed by the startup sequence.
 +For the Z axis only, input values equal to or greater than the current ''​SETUP''​ parameter value are acknowledged by <wrap reply> :A </​wrap> ​ but ignored.
 +
 +== Example ==
 +
 +<asi> $ SL X=-50 Y=-50 Z?
 +:A Z=-110.000</​asi>​
 +
 +In the above example, the lower limit for the X and Y axes have been set to 50 millimeters from the origin in the negative direction. ​ Note that the Z? resulted in the controller returning the current position of the Z lower firmware limit switch.
 +
 +**Note 1:** If this value is equal to or greater than the value for SETUP, then the controller will operate incorrectly. ​ See also Note 2. \\
 +**Note 2:** When the direction of an axis is negative (see[[commands:​customa| CCA Z=###]]), upper limit settings must be negative values, and lower limit settings must be positive values. \\
 +**Note 3:** For clocked devices (e.g. filter sliders, turrets) the lower limit is always 1. \\
 +**Note 4:** As of Tiger firmware v2.8, ''​SL [axis]+''​ will set the lower limit to be the current position. ​ Restore the default limit by executing ''​SL [axis]-''​. \\
