Subject: Phytron Phymotion reset on IOC boot

Dear all,

I have a Phytron stepper controller (I1AM01) with 16 axis with
incremental encoders, and I using EPICS Motor module to control all axis
since it supports this controller.

I noticed that the IOC for that specific model resets the controller on
connection (IOC boot). The reset erases the count on all encoders
forcing me to "home" all 16 axis again every time I have to reboot the IOC.

Is there a way to avoid this controller reset at IOC boot time to avoid
loosing the encoder counts? Anyone using this controller that could help
me with the settings?

Versions:
 - EPICS Base R3.15.5
 - asyn R4.31
 - autosave R5.7.1
 - motor-R6-9

Best regards,

Nilson
