-The Servo ON and Servo OFF commands allow the user to create an automatic PID ON/OFF (for example, when opening/​closing the myCNC software), as well as a manual set of buttons or commands to turn on and off the servo motor(s). ​+The Servo ON and Servo OFF commands allow the user to create an automatic PID ON/OFF (for example, when opening/​closing the myCNC software), as well as a manual set of buttons or commands to turn on and off the servo motor(s).

-As can be seen, writing 1 to the register 60000 will turn the PIDs on, while writing 1 to register 60001 will turn the servo PIDs off. This will also be used in manual servo control, where button can be utilized to quickly switch the motor on and off. +As can be seen, writing 1 to the register 60000 will turn the PIDs on, while writing 1 to register 60001 will turn the servo PIDs off. This will also be used in manual servo control, where an on-screen ​button can be utilized to quickly switch the motor on and off.
  
-In order to do so, it is necessary to have the %%__HANDLER_SERVO_ON%% and %%__HANDLER_SERVO_OFF%% commands in the Software PLC section. These can be extremely similar to the INIT and EXIT commands shown above, as they effectively perform the same task (differences begin to crop up only when additional actions are required on servo startup, or on program start, etc). By default, the following code is required for each respective PLC command: ​ +In order to do so, it is necessary to have the %%__HANDLER_SERVO_ON%% and %%__HANDLER_SERVO_OFF%% commands in the Software PLC section.
