Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1066970A2] The method involves driving the carriage from a first position to a known second position by a stepper motor (4) after switching on a motor circuit (18), indicating when the second position is reached and determining the correct loading of a position counter (14). The sensor signal is coupled to a step detector (16) that loads a value from a specification register (13) in the next full step position of the stepper motor An Independent claim is also included for an arrangement for standardizing the control of a carriage with a print head mounted on it.
