Leica Robotics Total Servo Motor
Any idea of what happens to the servo motor when I interrupt an ongoing rotation and manually rotate and point it to some other location? Thank you.
Are you physically grabbing the instrument while its rotating? Because this could cause damage over time. If you press "stop" and then move it, no issue.
When the TS is in standby turn it as you wish.
The gears are designed in a way that it does not cause damage.
The info below from the Geodimeter 600 / Trimble 5600 manual, indicates don't do it (for accuracy reasons):
