- Incorrect relation between electric field and mechanical motor movement.
- Error in motor encoder signal.
- Error in motor connection.
- Mechanical brake not released.

Error correction

- Inform your service agency.
- Check the machine parameter (distance for the number of signal periods, number of signal periods).
