Hi Torsten,


Yes, we can certainly go over the database.


I think the link alarm is not a problem.  If the soft motor record processes and gets a value from a record with UDF==1, it should be in link alarm.

Hej Tim and all,

We actually got the slit working in the motion controller.
I have, anyway, used the 2slit.db, mainly for testing & learning.

For the motor module, I use a patched version, which keeps the record
in UDF state, until the poller has really talked to the controller.
As a result, the soft motors sometimes (depending on the timing)
stay in "link alarm".
A movement will make the alarm disappear.

Do you think we can go through the db file next week,
some help is wanted.
