commands:where

Command:WHERE (W)

MS2000 or RM2000 syntax
Shortcut W
Format WHERE axis [axis] [axis]…
Tiger syntax
Shortcut W
Format WHERE axis [axis] [axis]…
Type Axis-Specific

Returns the current position of the device for the axis specified.

The reporting precision of the WHERE command can be changed with the VB Z command.

Reply

If there are no errors, a positive reply of :A will be followed by the current position, in tenths of microns.

Example
W X Y Z
:A 1234.5  432.1 0

In this example, X is 123.45 microns from the origin, Y is 43.21 microns from the origin, and Z is sitting on the origin.

Notes:No matter which order the X, Y, and Z’s are specified in the WHERE command, the reply will always be in the order of card address. Hence, the ordering of the responses does not necessarily follow the order of the query.
