MILS or MICRONS
« on: May 16, 2018, 07:58:20 am »
There have been recent discussions with customers and internally at Huntron regarding the movement units for the Huntron Access Probers. Some have put forward that since the Access Probers actually move in the metric unit microns that the availability to select MILS as an option is unnecessary. Personally I work in microns when using Access Probers mainly because it allows for the use of smaller steps. So, do any Access users out there have an opinion on whether we should keep the standard MIL setting or get rid of it and use the metric MICRONS setting only? From a Huntron software development stand point it would certainly simplify things not having to make the mils to microns conversion for Access Probers.
Input invited!
Thanks.

Keep to imperial measurements, but why do you guys drive on the right?
I guess you copied that from the French but not their metric system!
