Special use for MMIRROR_SLAVE on Micro-mirror card
On a Micromirror card with the MMIRROR_SLAVE define the SPEED command has a special meaning (it is otherwise unused with micro-mirror cards) starting in v3.18. It sets the scaling of the slave axis. The default scale is 0.5, meaning the electrical outputs corresponding to the invisible slaved axis will move half as far as the main axis.
