Positioning Speed

The typical positioning speed is the speed at which no large overshoots occur.

When decelerating from high speeds, the scan mirrors need some settling time before stably reaching the set position. Up to the typical positioning speed, the servos can handle this settling process effectively. Above this speed, overshoots may significantly extend the settling time.
