Command:STATUS (/)

Shortcut /
Format STATUS
Tiger syntax
Shortcut /
Format STATUS
Type Broadcast command

Inquires regarding the motor status of all axes. Queries the controller whether or not any of the motors are still busy moving following a serial command. Using the shortcut / is the preferred method for rapid polling of the controller for a busy state. The / is handled quickly in the command parser.

Reply

The positive reply can come in two forms:
N - there are no motors running from a serial command
B - there is a motor running from a serial command

Example
MOVE X=12345
:A
STATUS
B
/
N

In this example, the command MOVE started the X-axis moving towards the position 1.2345 millimeters from the origin. The first STATUS command returned a B showing that the motor is still busy moving towards the target. The second time, the STATUS command returned an N signifying that the MOVE command is finished and there is no longer any motor movement.
