Subject: VAL field in Motor record Default unit

Dear Tech-Talk,

   Hi, I am a student at the University of Washington and I am learning how to navigate and use EPICS programming.  For the task at hand I will not be able to use encoders, making use of absolute positioning impossible, so I was wondering what default unit the VAL field was in.  Through some testing it seems the larger the value, the faster the motor moves so I guessed that it might be a number that somehow represents revolutions per second (or another given time).  Hope you can shed some light on my issue.  Also, haven't subscribed yet, but I may have to depending on how this project continues.  Thanks again.

  Best,
