    I read the tutorial is to use the potentiometer to get the position of the seat and let the motor move accordingly. If we want to use Hall element to get position information, how to connect and process.

    I use the JRK utility, where I disconnect the pot at the flexible connector, turn the pot until the feedback line is in the middle with the motor levers horizontal and then snug the flexible coupling bolt back down. I expect it would be pretty much the same in the SMC3 utility.
