Newport IMS500LM Long-Travel Linear Motor Stage

This unit was tested before originally sold but was returned. Newport techs think the magnets not working correctly (updated Feb-19).

See notes on problem:

I went through several things with the tech support engineer, he got on with me using a Remote Desktop to examine a few things as well.
The stage is connected properly and registers movement when you move it manually.
We recalibrated the acceleration settings to account for a different load and the stage was able to do that automatically
(it has a piece of software that calculates the weight and how fast it needs to accelerate according to the weight).
He changed to code to register the current position as home and then the stage had no problem homing but was still unable
to move when given move commands (it still registered its current position and would update its position if you moved it manually).
If you moved it and then re-homed it and then asked it to move it would start in the direction indicated but only shift a few millimeters and then would not move.
It reminded me of an RC car when it’s batteries are low and it only has enough power built up to move a tiny bit immediately after you turn it on.
I tried changing the slots the drive cards were in and using both of the two drive cards but did not see any changes when I did that.
Based on what we tried and talked about, the tech support engineer said he thought that since he stage is about 14 years old there
may be a problem with the magnets that cause motion in the stage.
