    Hello, I have working with very good results, a colpick with two 100 mm SCN5 actuators, mounted on the front, with a system of levers that new the complete colpick, pedals and steering wheel.
    My question is, I have two more than 150 mm actators, I wanted to put one as loss of traction, with that I have no problem. But I also wanted to put another one on the back of the colpick, as support
    of the two forwards.
    I changed the programming and I put the one for the 100 mm SCN5, with the scn5 utility it works fine, it only travels the 100 mm.
    But when I hook it up to Simtools and it does the centering it does the full 150mm travel
    Is there a way that this actuator does not center, or makes it 100 mm?

    Have you tried axis limiting in SimTools?

    If I have changed him.
    And that is effective, already once inside simtools,
    But on simtools boot it still behaves like a 150mm actuator.
    If there was a way for that actuator not to focus, it would work fine
