 +Sets the length of time msec, in milliseconds,​ the controller will pause at the end of a move.  The busy status is not cleared during this pause state, unless the ''​MAINTAIN''​ behavior for the axis is set to ''​code=3''​. ​ Additionally,​ a **P** is displayed on the LCD display when in the Pause state. ​ During the Pause state, the servo loop remains actively attempting to position the axis on target. ​
 +
 +For a piezo stage axis, the controller enters the Pause state as soon as the command is received and the voltage applied to the piezo. ​ The controller remains BUSY until the Pause state times out.  Typically used to allow for piezo stage settling time.
 +
 +For Phototargeting or ''​MM_TARGET''​ firmware , this can be used to specify the amount of time between the move initiation (either a ring buffer move or from the [[commands:​aij|AIJ command]]) and when the laser pulse turns on. Thus it would normally be non-zero for at least one of the micro-mirror axes involved in phototargeting. ​ Default for all axes in''​ MM_TARGET''​ firmware is 5 ms (usual default is 0 ms).
