current limit for phidget bipolar in max

Dear Patrick,

Thanks a lot for fix this problem so fast !!!
It is very helpfull and I really appreciate this.

Two more small questions:

How does the scale of the currentlimit number in max relate to actual current? (in the driver you can define your maximum current limit by looking at the current slider) So I can use the driver to define the maximum current, but how do translate this current to the numberbox in max?

The maximum velocity in the max patch is much lower than the maximum speed in the driver. Can I just scale the slider in the max patch to obtain higher velocities?

Again, thanks !

ps I will informe you when the project is finished. So you can see how your technology has been used :-)

Yes, you can just scale the slider - the maximum velocity for the bipolar dirver is 32768 (16th steps/second). The Max .help file is really just an example. The current limit is in Amps, and this value must be in the range of 0.0542 - 2.492.
